HARTFORD, Conn. (December 19, 2012) – Every year, Connecticut’s official house – the
Governor’s Residence in Hartford – opens up to the public with musical performances, holiday
decorations and visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus.
 
This year, CPTV captured the three-day event in a new half-hour special called Open for the
Holidays: A Celebration at the Governor’s Residence, premiering Friday, December 21 at 8:30
p.m. on Connecticut Public Television (CPTV), with encore broadcasts on Sunday, December 23
at 8:30 p.m.; Monday, December 24 at 9 p.m. and Thursday, December 27 at 10:30 p.m.
 
Open for the Holidays: A Celebration at the Governor’s Residence is part of CPTV’s 50th
Anniversary celebration.
 
The special takes viewers inside the 1909 stately Georgian Revival to learn more about the
history of its architecture and view the recent restoration work done on the property. Open for the
Holidays also goes behind the scenes as the Governor’s staff adorns the home with an
extraordinary collection of Connecticut-based holiday decorations in preparation for the annual
Open House weekend held this year on December 7-9.
 
During the open house, several musical groups and artists performed for visitors, including the
U.S. Coast Guard Glee Club, singer Catherine Quirk, Hall High School Choir (West Hartford),
Conard High School Solo Choir (West Hartford) and others.
