A concert honoring singer and longtime Danbury resident Marian Anderson is being held at West Conn tomorrow. The event celebrates the 122nd anniversary of Anderson’s birth on February 27th, 1897. It's being held at 7pm in the Veronica Hagman Concert Hall of the Visual and Performing Arts Center on the university’s Westside campus.
West Conn recently announced its intention to name the School of Visual and Performing Arts and the Visual and Performing Arts Center in honor of Marian Anderson. The naming project will recognize Anderson’s accomplishments in music and civil rights, as well as the memory of her years in Danbury.
