Fortuna Concert Series


The Redwood loves music! It is always playing in the lobby, even in the porte-cochère upon your arrival. The Fortuna Concert Series, playing at The Monday Club in Fortuna, brings both local and international performers to Fortuna. The venue, The Monday Club, is both intimate and comfortable and almost every seat feels like the front row. We have even hosted some of the performers right here at The Redwood.
