Enjoy a Virtual Tour of Greenwood Gardens

Though Greenwood is closed for the winter, our staff remains busy preparing the site for our regular season which begins May 1. Our gardeners have been clearing pathways around the ponds, restoring views to the Main House in the process. Come spring, we will be placing several antique, ornate benches at pond’s edge. They have been in storage for many years and will provide opportune seating for meditation or encountering a goose or two. 

In the meantime, we hope this online “tour” of the garden, accompanied by the virtuosity of violinist William Wei playing Bach’s Partitia in E Gavotte en Rondeau, will help you feel connected to nature and provide a revitalizing boost to your senses. Click on the photo link below to begin the tour and performance.

A Laureate of the prestigious 2015 Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competition, Mr. Wei is a recipient of the Jerome L. Greene Foundation Scholarship for his bachelor’s degree at The Juilliard School. He was introduced to Greenwood by composer Shiuan Chang, founder of Innuan, a non-profit organization dedicated to exploring the critical role of live music performance in new directions for the 21st century.
