Oral History Information
Grace Marquette didn't care much for vacations or trips because it took her away from what she loved, her music store. Grace and her late husband, Robert, purchased the Loser’s Music Store, which was originally opened in 1923 on Cumberland Street in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, in 1954. The location only moved once, in 1968, right up the road and still on Cumberland, which seemed fitting for the music shop that was built on community values and relationships. After Robert’s passing in 2003, Grace continued the couple’s focus of providing quality band music for the local schools and teachers with a heart for putting music in the lives of young students. Today, her children continue running the business with the same passion and love for music makers as their parents.
