About the Event

Please join us for the next installment of our lively First Wednesdays musical event series, curated by Nancy Winston. This month, we’re delighted to feature pianist Jonathan Schwartz, who will take us on a musical journey through several continents, spanning the Baroque period up through the twentieth century—with a guest appearance by Kathleen Landis Bartos.

As always, the conversation and conviviality will continue over dinner downstairs after the program. We look forward to seeing you there!
