Sunday 23 July at 11:00 am

Kick off the final day of our 2017 Festival with a delicious brunch and recital of piano works by Richard Strauss, performed by pianist Walter Morales. Please reserve your ticket by noon on Thursday 20 July!

Table setting

Enjoy a gourmet brunch buffet in the beautiful ballroom of the Benedum House in Shadyside. The Benedum House sits on the bluff along Fifth Avenue, with lovely views of the surrounding neighborhoods. Detailed driving directions and information on parking will be provided to ticket holders by email the day before the event.


Because there is very limited parking at the Benedum House, we ask that guests please park at Winchester Thurston School, in either the inner courtyard parking lot (entrance on Ellsworth) or on the street—street parking is free all day on Sunday. A series of shuttles will transport you from the courtyard parking lot up the hill to the event.

Shuttle service begins at 10:30 am, and will run every 5 minutes or so. At the conclusion, shuttles will again transport you back to Winchester Thurston, in time for the 2:00 pm curtain time for Intermezzo.
