The venue honors the Koreshan Unity Settlement which considered art and music an integral part of their lives. The Art Hall was built circa 1905. Gutshtein became interested in developing a cultural center there and, following reconstruction of the facility, she brought a New York architect to the Hall to ensure that it would provide the proper acoustics for chamber music.
It is the goal of Gutshtein and Sandler to make a lasting impact on the cultural life of Estero as well as make Estero an important cultural destination in Florida.
These concert series provide the cultural environment envisioned by the Koreshans for the enjoyment of the residents and visitors of today.
