More holiday cheer in the Peterloon dining room
Everyone was welcomed in the Peterloon foyer with a crackling fire in the 16th century fireplace with seasonal decorations.

Peterloon was the home of John And Irene Emery. John Emery is recognized as the principle developer Cincinnati’s downtown, and built Carew Tower, considered one of the most important commercial Art Deco structures in the United States. Irene Emery was the daughter of Charles Dana Gibson, the artist who created the Gibson Girls illustrations in the early 20th century, and his family portraits and other paintings still remain throughout the house.
The experience of a concert at Peterloon is magical for both artists and audience.
