Candlelight Concert @ Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library
Dec 10 @ 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Immerse yourself in an evening of stunning ambience by candlelight, featuring angelic music by People-to-People International musicians Olivia Geiser and Noëlle Grüebler of Winterthur, Switzerland.

The Winterthur estate, now known as Winterthur Museum, Garden, and Library, was named by Swiss-born Jacques-Antoine Bidermann, husband of Evelina Gabrielle du Pont, to honor his ancestral home.

Duo Noëlle Grüebler (violin) and Olivia Geiser (piano), dedicated their project, Winterthur and Music, to various composers linked to Winterthur, Switzerland, providing interesting insight into the vibrant musical scene of this town on the outskirts of Zurich. Join us for a Yuletide evening as we bring the two Winterthurs together through music. $15; $10 for Members. Reserve now.

Bites and libations will be available for purchase in the Visitor Center prior to the concert beginning at 5:00 pm, and until 8:00 pm after the concert, as you mingle with the musicians. 

Winterthur thanks People-to-People Delaware for sponsoring the Candlelight Concert and bringing the two Winterthurs together this Yuletide season.
