The Winds’ annual Holiday Concert returns to Holmes Hall in Allegheny West over Thanksgiving weekend. This year’s program features music by composers who immigrated to the United States from all over the world, bringing with them many different musical traditions that have immeasurably enriched our musical melting pot. Celebrate the beginning of the holiday season in this elegant site with great music, fine reception food, warm fellowship, and a tour of the spectacular toy train exhibit upstairs from the ballroom!
