The Nichols House Museum, which is part of the Alliance of House Museums along with Prescott House, has organized a holiday house tour of Beacon Hill on December 10th. The Prescott House Committee will be at the house to welcome about 300 visitors who take this tour each year. In addition to showing visitors our home decorated for the holidays, we’ll have Boston pianist, Jayne Young, playing Christmas carols on our Tomkinson piano in the parlor.
If you’d like to go on the Beacon Hill Holiday House Tour, you’ll have the rare opportunity to experience a select group of remarkable private residences at their festive best. This year like every year, the tour showcases outstanding examples of historic preservation, as well as creative modern interpretations and adaptations in a broad range of architectural and interior design styles throughout Beacon Hill. The Nichols House Museum and the William Hickling Prescott House will also be open for self-guided tours, and there will be strolling performances by the Olde Towne Carolers.
As an after party, from 3–5 pm there will be light refreshments at the Kings Chapel Parish House on Beacon Street and Liya Nigmati will be performing at the Parish House receiption. Nigmati is an accomplished solo and collaborative pianist, a vocal and instrumental coach, and a music educator. Winner of several international piano competitions, Liya has toured across the world. She has been critically acclaimed for her “stunning performance” (Global Times) in which she “…shined through” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer).
