Concerts by Candlelight
The Women for Greater Philadelphia are pleased to announce the 42th Anniversary Season of Concerts by Candlelight at Laurel Hill Mansion. On five Sunday evenings throughout the summer of 2017, we will again present our series of chamber music concerts performed by musicians from the Philadelphia area. Through the years it has been our good fortune to have had so many accomplished artists accepting our invitation to play.
To help defray the cost of these wonderful performances, we accept tax deductible contributions of any amount. If you would like to become a Sponsor or Patron, we will gladly add your name to our printed program. Of course we shall end each concert evening with our lovely reception on the porch overlooking the river, where you may enjoy refreshments and have the opportunity to meet and greet the artists. We do hope you will join us.

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.
