Welcome to Casa Feliz, the beautifully restored Spanish Farmhouse designed by acclaimed architect James Gamble Rogers II. Overlooking the golf course in the heart of Winter Park, Casa Feliz is the ideal setting.

The rich textures of original Spanish roof tiles and whitewashed century-old bricks... a turret, a bell tower, and a heavy timber balcony detailed in colors of the Mediterranean... lush landscaping--courtyards and sweeping oaks, and native plants contained by ancient clay amphoras provide an intriguing backdrop for MUsic at The Casa. 

Enter inside to discover interiors skillfully refurbished to their original splendor. The rich details of the house--the living room's vaulted ceiling of massive hand-hewn beams; the heavily carved European antiques accenting each room; a Majolica-tiled interior courtyard and fountain; arched doorways and a circular staircase--combine for a setting at once comforting and breathtaking.

James Gamble Rogers II [masked]) was one of the defining architects of Winter Park, helping to lend the community its distinctive character. Born in Winnetka, Illinois and educated at Dartmouth College, Rogers trained at his father's Daytona Beach architectural firm until 1928, when he opened a practice in Winter Park.Over the next sixty years, his name would become synonymous with traditional residential architecture in the growing community. His style flowed effortlessly from French Provincial to Spanish Colonial.

    A superior performance by a thoroughly natural and disciplined guitarist. Troy Gifford was in complete command of his instruments and the "moment." He made the occasion memorable and immensely enjoyable! This was evident in everyone who attended.

    Fabled old house that was saved from the wrecking ball, people inside who smell good and keep their counsel, a trained classical guitar artist, maybe a sound from the "Ipanema" region of Brazil -- all that's needed on Sunday is a roomful of aficionados! See you there, Senors, senoras, y senoritas! (I didn't take time for the tildas; will the world get along anyway?)
