Carmel's Sunset Cultural Center offers a wide selection of concerts and events. Best known for Carmel's annual Bach Festival, it also hosts smaller intimate concerts and symphony concerts. The seating is comfortable, and while it was totally refurbished and modified, the sound can be hit and miss.

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!

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.

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!

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.
