“Sunset Center is a sunrise for your soul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We moved to Carmel 10 years ago for it's beauty and culture.Sunset Center received a $25 million upgrade in 2002 and I sang in the Bach Festival then.For classical music fans,Bach Festival and Carmel Music Society present world class music without the frenzy of big city parking,traffic, and cost.The center is architecturally referencing the Mission,with state of the art acoustics.Every seat is great.Just saw Philharmonia Baroque and Opera San Jose through Carmel Music Society.Exquisite.Check their website!

“Excellent local venue for theater events”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Great seats, acoustics and acts. Reasonably priced. Saw Ira Glass there a bit ago. I was in the front row. I'll never forget it.

“Best Place to be entertained in Carmel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Whatever event i see here, from the Turtles to Crosby Stills And Nash, it is a small and great acoustic theater. There is not a bad seat in the house, but I usually buy front row tickets. I saw the beatles show, 1964 here, and I tell you, it is the next best thing to seeing the Beatles themselves, which is impossible. They have reasonably priced alcohol and snacks during intermission. This is a real gem in carmel, great events here!

“Judy Collins....YES!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Went to see her last week and it was amazing. Of course the crowd is what you would expect, grey, crooked, and happy to remember theri teenage years. The Sunset Center is a great venue, small but provides the audience with great sound. I just hope I look as good as Judy does when I reach 77.
