Grace Coolidge Musicale – Student Edition

2 PM

An appreciative and encouraging audience is sought for the first concert of the Grace Coolidge Musicale series. This recital will showcase the blossoming talents of piano students from across Vermont and honors the nurturing spirit of First Lady Coolidge. Grace was an educator before her marriage to Calvin Coolidge and harbored a profound appreciation for music. Under these auspices, the students have been invited to perform on a unique instrument.  The piano to be played was a gift from the Baldwin Company to Grace during her tenure in the White House. It was once performed on by Russian virtuoso Sergei Rachmaninoff and was the first piano known fly in an airplane. Admission to the concert is free.

Holiday Open House

Winter is ready to fall upon the quiet village of Plymouth Notch. Before the snows deepen, join the residents of the village as they celebrate the holiday season. The Coolidge birthplace will be festooned with fresh greenery as it would have been during Christmastime in Calvin Coolidge’s childhood. The greenery continues throughout the village where wreaths don the doors of the homes and lanterns. Visitors can warm up in the museum where pianist Steve Morse will be taking song requests on Grace's piano. At 12:45PM a tree lighting ceremony will call into remembrance the moment President Coolidge threw the switch on the very first lit National tree in 1923. Immediately following at 1PM, the warmth of the village’s Union Christian Church will welcome visitors for a time of caroling. Don’t forget to pick out gifts at the museum gift shop clearance sale. This is a free and family-friendly event!
