This delightful annual event presents glorious song and musical conversation, accompanied by delectable hors d’oeuvres and potables.

The “tacet” auction often features items such as elegant vacation homes and select items of fine art and crafts. A special afternoon not to be missed!

The Oaks Cloister is one of the most magnificent private residences in Philadelphia. Designed in 1900 by Joseph Miller Huston, the architect of the Pennsylvania State Capitol, this elegant Tudor estate stands on a hill overlooking the greenery of Fairmount Park. Superbly restored under its current owners, Dr. Russell Harris and Mr. John Casavecchia, the Oaks Cloister has the distinction of achieving historical certification as one of Pennsylvania’s treasured landmarks.
