With a presentation of “The Lady from Philadelphia”

Marian Anderson was born in Philadelphia on February 27, 1897, to a family of humble means. A woman of simple dignity and serene charm, Marian Anderson raised her art to a level of such perfection that when she sang, her music became akin to a religious experience in its emotional impact.

“The Lady from Philadelphia” is a musical narrative that tells the story of the extraordinary life and career of the legendary singer Marian Anderson. The program combines spoken narration, photographic slide projections, live singing and historic recordings of Marian Anderson’s own voice.
