Darlington Celebrates Teaching Artists in the News

Darlington Arts Center proudly supports its Teaching Artists and students participating in cultural arts events. In April, two events in the Delaware Valley attest to the talents and excellent reputations of DAC Teaching Artists that we support and invite the public to attend.

50 Years of Excellence Honoring David Auldon Brown, Teaching Artist Faculty on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 7:00 PM

Darlington Arts Center invites the community to celebrate the musical accomplishments of David Brown, a superlative Darlington Teaching Artist, at a concert in his honor. This event, held on April 21 at the Music School of Delaware, is to commemorate David’s 50 years of teaching in the area.

This special concert will include performances by outstanding Music School of Delaware faculty and former students who are professional musicians, and will include several of David Brown’s compositions. A unique feature will be a vocal performance by his elder daughter Andrea, an opera singer in Germany, who will sing two songs during which David Brown will accompany on piano. In one piece, David’s younger daughter Sara on flute will join them. This promises to be a wonderful event of great music in honor of a great pianist, composer, and Teaching Artist.

Please join us in celebrating David Auldon Brown at this event and RSVP today! Rayna Gray (302) 762-1132 x28 or rgray@musicschoolofdelaware.org
