A One-Time Historic Event – Not To Be Missed!

Sold out! Please add your name to the waiting list below.

Watch a 115-year-old Steinway grand come to life outdoors with renowned concert pianist Daniel Vnukowski, at a historic residence dating back to 1850.

Enjoy delectable, sumptuous finger foods, boutique wine and the tranquil surroundings of the 14-acre MacLean property. Soulful music, culinary art and the soothing sounds of nature are combined in one.

A herb and vegetable garden surrounded by a Yew hedge anchors the view from the back of the house. An old apple orchard, rustic outbuildings and meandering bucolic gardens bring a serenity to the area.

….a stroke of genius!

This assertive, fearlessly virtuosic Chopin style was filled with thoughtful exploration and a kind of questioning illumination.
