Washington, CT - On the wintery day of Sunday, December 13, the cozy space of the Skitch Henderson Museum resounded the harmonic voices of 11 Glenholme choral performers as they harmonized a dozen holiday songs including “African Noel,” “Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!”Believe,” and “Sleigh Ride.” The museum is only a small part of the Hunt Hill Farm Trust in New Milford, which also includes the Silo cooking school, cultural center, gallery, land preserve and shop.

Active for nearly 300 years, the Hunt Hill Farm has been home to the Hendersons since 1968. Skitch Henderson, a philanthropist, collector, and lover of the arts; was the musical director for NBC in the early years of the Tonight show. As stewards of the Hunt Hill Farm, the Hendersons established the gallery in 1975, which has a long history of promoting the arts and artisanry, both regionally and nationally.

The Glenholme choral performers were invited to perform at the Skitch Henderson Museum as part of their annual “Sounds of the Season,” which features local school talent. In addition to performing, the museum offered opportunities to enjoy the shop, delightful treats from the cooking school and the 27-foot Christmas tree located in the Silo Gallery. Performing at the Skitch Henderson Museum was a delightful experience and the Glenholme students look forward to future opportunities with the Hunt Hill Farm with great anticipation.
