Five evenings a week at The Peninsula Beverly Hills, hotel guests and locals gather in The Living Room
to enjoy the music of resident pianist Antonio Castillo de la Gala
. With more than 2,000 tunes committed to memory, Castillo de la Gala performs selections ranging from classical works and Broadway favorites to movie themes and popular songs. Now, hotel guests can enjoy a unique, personalized one-on-one session with the talented performer who, prior to joining The Peninsula Beverly Hills, entertained celebrities for more than 30 years at elegant venues in Hollywood, Bel-Air and Beverly Hills. Hollywood Piano Legends Master Class
, the newest cultural offering in The Peninsula Academy collection of exclusive experiences for hotel guests, features a private 90-minute piano lesson with Castillo de la Gala, followed by lunch with him in the hotel’s elegant Belvedere restaurant.
