The Women for
Greater Philadelphia, on five Sunday evenings evenings
during the Summer, will again present its well
established summer “pastiche”, the Concerts by Candlelight at Laurel Hill
Mansion. Through the years it has been our good fortune to have had so many
accomplished artists accepting our invitation to play here. We know that
you will find the coming season’s programs as delightful as in the past.
Of course, we shall top off these perfect evenings with our “meet and greet” the artist receptions on the porch overlooking the river following each concert. Do come. We want all to experience the charm and hospitality of Laurel Hill.

A brief history of Concerts by Candle Light at Laurel Hill Mansion
The "Concerts by Candlelight" series held each summer at Laurel Hill
Mansion has been delighting citizens since its inception in 1976.
The concerts highlighting local and national musicians are organized by
Women For Greater Philadelphia’s music committee. Some of the artists
that have performed include the Jubal trio with Sue Ann Kahn, The Wister
Quartet and Susan Duer. The series which focuses on chamber music
takes place in Laurel Hill Mansion's famous octagonal room.
These popular summer concerts are held in honor of Mrs. Esther Kahn, music chairman of Women for Greater Philadelphia, for twenty years until her death in 1996.
