Holmes Hall


The Winds will return to Holmes Hall on Saturday, November 25 for our traditional Thanksgiving weekend concert, followed by a tour of the spectacular toy train museum upstairs. Set in one of Pittsburgh’s most remarkable 19th-century mansions, this concert features chamber music surrounded by historic architecture. A meet-the-artist reception follows with a guided tour of the world’s finest collection of pre-WWII “standard-gauge” electric trains by Lionel, Ives, American Flyer, Bing, and other pioneering toy companies.
