A Very Special Penn’s Village Holiday Celebration!

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Penn's Village friends and neighbors gathered to spread some holiday cheer with music, readings and socializing in keeping with the Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa traditions!

Our celebration featured a special concert by a local violin & piano duo, reading by Penn's Village members Harriette Mishkin, Lois Evans and Lori Dumas, and a performance from Patricia Alsina, our Penn’s Village friend, from her home in Argentina!

Kyle Walker and Katherine Dennis helped us usher in the Holiday season with a cozy program that included a mixture of classical and holiday favorites. Decorate your home with the sounds of brilliant classical composers such as Chevalier, Debussy, Kreisler, and Price. While holiday favorites warm your hearts. 

Kyle and Katherine were brought to Penn's Village by Group Muse.  Group Muse provides intimate musical experiences in the age of social distancing by connecting to great musicians and a warm and welcoming community over live performances streamed into your home.
