Join the Winds for our annual Holiday Concert in Holmes Hall, a spectacular Victorian mansion in Allegheny West on the North Side of Pittsburgh.  This year we welcome Gretchen Van Hoesen, Principal Harpist of the Pittsburgh Symphony, as our collaborating artist.  The harp will be featured in French music of Ravel and Berlioz, an exotic Russian work, and a delightful Christmas setting by the late Pittsburgh composer, Roland Leich.

Included in the ticket price is the post-concert reception and a tour of the toy train museum on the upper floors of Holmes Hall, the world’s finest collection of pre-WWII “standard gauge” tinplate electric trains.  Don’t miss it!  Advance reservations are strongly recommended, as seating is limited.
