Valley of Heart’s Delight: Concert with Margo Cilker

Musician Margo Cilker performs songs from her acclaimed album Valley of Heart’s Delight in a concert presented by Music Producer Debra Heesch and Museum orchard volunteers. She will be joined by local author Robin Chapman, who will share the rich history of the Los Altos Heritage Orchard.

About the Program

Held in the Museum’s courtyard, the concert includes:

  • Apricot-flavored drinks
  • An agricultural tour using Los Altos History Museum’s app
  • CD and vinyl sales of Margo Cilker’s albums
  • A book signing with Robin Chapman

Margo Cilker’s album explores the nostalgia and change in California’s Santa Clara Valley, once famed for orchards, now dominated by Silicon Valley. As a fifth-generation native, Cilker intertwines themes of family and nature across 11 songs, portraying their beauty and vulnerability amidst urban sprawl.

Robin Chapman, a former television news professional, is the author of five books, including The Valley of Heart’s Delight: True Tales from Around the Bay and California Apricots: the Lost Orchards of Silicon Valley. Her work emphasizes the region’s agricultural history and cultural heritage.
