We have been patrons for many years and have travelled to other regions to attend events but, outside of New York, do you find so many great offerings in beautiful venues. Pick a genre and there is something on the schedule.

The tour was very interesting. They pointed out neat architectural features like the curved stairs, and fancy ceilings and chandeliers. This place is really breathtaking and feels like a step back in time.
