The prime goal of the Coltrane Home is to inspire music making by people of all ages and backgrounds.
– Alice Coltrane
Not one but two great African American artists lived and worked in the John and Alice Coltrane Home in Dix Hills. Please help us to restore the home and share the important Coltrane legacy of creative artistry and spirituality with the public. During the years the family lived in Dix HIlls, John Coltrane composed “A Love Supreme” at the home and Alice Coltrane made several recordings in the home studio. The site will include an historical house museum featuring interactive exhibits, listening stations, digital archives and a meditation garden on the extensive grounds. There will also be musical education programs on and off-site beginning in 2014. The Indiegogo campaign will help us to accomplish this goal by 2014, the 50th Anniversary of ”A Love Supreme”.
Thank you so much,
The Friends of the Coltrane Home in Dix Hills
