BACKGROUND

These concerts are presented by Bella Gutshtein and Boris Sandler, artistic directors and founders of the Estero Concert Series.

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 and was used for lectures, plays and concerts.

Bella 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.  Thus began the Estero Concert Series.
