Our Resident Instruments

Music has been a long-standing tradition at Longwood Gardens, dating back to Pierre S. du Pont's boyhood delight in the performing arts.

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.

Our resident instruments—The Longwood Organ, the 62-bell Carillon, and The Longwood Steinway Grand Piano—remain cornerstones of our performing arts programming to this day.
