Event Details

Looking at documents since the founding of The Gunnery, Emma Wang, a 2017-2018 Gunn Scholar, has drawn connections between the school music programs and the broader history of music education.  With a focus on the town of Washington, Connecticut and local institutions, her presentation will illustrate the changes and developments of musical instruction.

Each spring ten heritage sites throughout Northwest Connecticut present History Bites, a series of weekly lunchtime programs designed to bring topics of local history to the attention of the regional community.  The lunchtime series is to be hosted on Thursdays between April and June from 12:00 to 1:00 pm.  Attendees are encouraged to bring lunch.  Beverages and dessert will be provided by the hosting organization.  Lectures are free and open to the public.  History Bites is sponsored in part by the Connecticut Community Foundation.  Parking is limited, please carpool.
