A Holiday Message from Our Staff

December 23, 2021

Happy Holidays 2021

The end of another year always brings about a time of reflection for me. As we look forward to 2022, it is important to remember how far we’ve come in 2021. Not only did we complete our first virtual season, but we were also able to return to our first in-person concerts since February of 2020. After a year and a half of isolation, it felt good to be able to come together and appreciate music in a concert hall once again.

We would not have been able to make it through this incredibly challenging year without the support of YOU, our patrons and friends. Without you, we would not be looking forward to another exciting Piano Festival from April 24 to May 15, 2022, filled to the brim with exceptional performances and experiences.


Though we hope to see you again in-person or virtually soon, we hope you will think of The Gilmore as you plan your year-end contributions if you haven’t already. Your gift, no matter the size, helps us bring inspiring music to the community through our education and community engagement programs, recital series, and, of course, the Festival. Your holiday gift will help The Gilmore finish the year on a high note!

Wishing you and yours a happy holiday season,

Pierre van der Westhuizen
Executive and Artistic Director
