Welcome to Tiny Porch Concerts –
We would like to give everyone an update on the new stage. Thank you to our sponsors, private donations and show contributions last year we were able to raise a little over $30,000 for the design and construction of a new stage. Unfortunately, the Cornell area was one of the hardest areas hit by the fire last November and the Peter Strauss Ranch House and old wood stage were destroyed. The theatre is made of stone mostly so it’s untouched and surprisingly most of the trees and bathrooms survived the fire. However, this, along with delays caused by the government shut down, has prevented us from constructing the new stage this season.
With the hard work of the National Park Service and the creative Tiny Porch team, the show will go on. Temporary stage ideas are in the works and rest assured the spirit of the ranch will live on this summer. We will share the new stage design at the shows this season.
The Summer Concerts at Peter Strauss Ranch has always been a free music series and the National Parks would like to keep it that way. However, this series does not happen at this level without our sponsors and VIP season ticket donors. They are truly patrons of the arts. With their support we have been able to obtain some of the most talented artists from all over the country to play right here in our own backyard, the Santa Monica Mountains. We encourage everyone to show their appreciation to our sponsors for they are the ones that got us here.
If you like the series and want to support it but are not a sponsor or VIP ticket holder you can still help. There are donation boxes at every show and the money collected goes to the Santa Monica Mountains Fund.
The Santa Monica Mountains Fund contributes to the local National Park Service by supporting their work in education, science, research, improved facilities, citizen engagement, stewardship and philanthropy.
It has always been the intent of Peter Strauss Ranch to promote arts and entertainment and this music series lives to carry on that tradition. If you love live original music you are at the right place.
Enjoy the shows!
Tiny Porch Concerts
Tiny Porch Concerts is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Corporation dedicated to the arts and preserving the Santa Monica Mountains.
There is no other venue quite like Peter Strauss Ranch. This rustic theater is tucked into the Santa Monica Mountains on the outskirts of Agoura Hills in an area that has been untouched by modern times. It is our version of the Hollywood Bowl, with plenty of parking, without the traffic but a bit more rustic. We hope you enjoy this truly unique venue as much as we do.
Founded by Mike Corridori, TPC looks to continue a rich tradition of live music singing through the Santa Monica Mountains
