On Easter Sunday in 1939, more than 75,000 people crowded into The Mall around the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., to hear contralto Marian Anderson give a free, open-air concert.
Each year in April we commemorate Ms Anderson's historic performance. This year, the Danbury Museum is pleased to showcase the talents of WCSU School of Visual & Performing Arts students who will be performing some of Ms Anderson's music from that day.
Join us in our Marian Anderson studio on Saturday, April 21, at 2:00 p.m. as we celebrate Ms Anderson's music. This event is FREE and open to the public. Seating is limited to 50 people and is on a first come, first served basis.
As 2018 begins and we near the completion of our 75th year this April, we look back with pride at what we have accomplished in 2017, and we look forward to what we can do in the coming year with your continued support.
We're proud to be the stewards of Danbury's past, holding it in trust for Danbury's future.
