Tune in for a performance at the National Marian Anderson Museum, where opera singer and civil rights advocate Marian Anderson lived from 1924 to 1993. Orchestra musicians Philip Kates and Davyd Booth are joined by singers Jillian Patricia Pirtle and Tanisha Anderson for this one-of-a-kind concert you won't want to miss.
The Orchestra extends special thanks to Jacobs Music for its maintenance work on the home’s Steinway grand piano, on which Blanche Burton-Lyles, founder of the Marian Anderson Museum, played and entertained as a child.
