As Pierre established the Gardens, he paid particular attention to performing arts spaces, and ensured that the Gardens would be a place of grand-style entertaining. Pierre purchased a 1923 Steinway concert grand piano, which now sits majestically in the Conservatory Music Room.
Construction was complete in 1929 on the Chimes Tower, which now houses a 62-bell carillon.
He constructed the largest residence organ in the world—Longwood's 10,010 pipe Aeolian organ, in 1930.
These resident instruments remain cornerstones of Longwood's performing arts programming, which presents world-class artists in unparalleled settings.
