Perhaps you’re aware that John Coltrane was one of the most important musicians of all time, but did you know that John Coltrane’s masterpiece – “A Love Supreme” – was written in the Coltrane family home in Dix Hills, New York?
Please join us in celebrating the 50th anniversary of this great American work of art with a donation to restore The John and Alice Coltrane Home in Dix Hills. The Home will be open to the public and serve our community as an important cultural site and inspirational education center in a beautiful natural setting.
Visitors to the restored home will experience first hand the Coltrane legacy of creativity, education, spirituality and innovation. Intended to be a place of inspiration, visitors will enter an interactive museum and learning center featuring listening stations, the refurbished recording studio where Alice Coltrane – a great musician in her own right — recorded some of her most lauded work, engaging educational workshops and programs, and a serene meditation garden honoring Alice Coltrane.
Saved from the wrecking ball, the home is now on the National Register of Historic Places and has been identified as one of the Most Endangered Historic Sites in America. With your help it is destined to become a gift to our community for all time. Much work has been done on the structure and grounds of the home but there is still so much more to do to ready the home for the public. Please help the Friends of the Coltrane Home realize our goals for this unique historic treasure.
On this Giving Tuesday, we ask for your support in making the vision of The Coltrane Home a reality. Click here to make your tax-deductible donation to the Friends of the Coltrane Home. Gifts of every size are appreciated. All contributions will go toward the continued restoration of the home and to support events and empowering music education programs for students and community throughout the region.
Make a difference today. Support the Friends of the Coltrane Home in our efforts to save the Home where not one, but two great African American artists created, worked and forever changed the face of music. The Coltrane Legacy will thrive at The John and Alice Coltrane Home in Dix Hills with your generous help.
Wishing you a holiday season filled with peace, love and music.
