    Vibrant Spring has arrived at Tor House and that means that the Annual Spring Garden Party is just around the corner. Our annual open house is a special time for Jeffers’ fans to tour, relax, and refresh in the gardens, home, and amazing Hawk Tower perched over the Pacific at Carmel Point. 

    During the Garden Party at Tor House the blooming spring gardens will be filled with art, poetry and, especially music. Justice Post, a student at MPC, and Jane Yang will be the featured pianists at the Steinway. Local musicians, Grace Padgett, 1st Violin; Jane Yang, 2nd Violin; Henry Loh, Viola; and Jacob Hoadley, Cello, of the local Sea Otter Quartet will perform. They are all students of Rose Marie Dunsford. Sue Mudge from the Carmel Bach Festival is arranging for young brass players to play from the tower and outside the gates. And, of course, Ed Jarvis will return. His Hawk Tower performance on the bagpipes is always one of the highlights of the Garden Party. 

    Beside music, there will be plein air painters, knowledgeable docents answering questions and reading poems, and the opportunity to explore Tor House and Hawk Tower at your own pace. Tea, punch, and homemade nibbles will be served in the garden and in the Jeffers’ dining room. 

    Photography in Tor House and Hawk Tower is permitted only on this special day. 

    Admission to the event is $15 per person. You can buy tickets online ahead of time 
    or the day of the party at the gate with cash or check. 

    Children must be over the age of ten. Please, no pets of any age. Sensible shoes recommended. 

    Weather is changeable this time of year so be prepared for bright sun, foggy breezes, or ocean mists. Possibly all three.
