Marion Anderson Exent

Kate was invited by the Danbury Historical Society to perform her Marian Anderson segment from Women: Back to the Future for the official February 28, 2005, unveiling of the Marian Anderson Commemorative Stamp in Danbury, Connecticut. It was very exciting and an honor to be singing to a standing room only crowd in the Danbury Music Center - the same auditorium in which Miss Anderson had performed many times. Included in the audience were state government officials as well as personal friends and neighbors of the famous singer.
