The legacy of the great singer Marian Anderson (born and raised here in Philadelphia) encompasses both astounding artistry and great courage in facing the ugliness of racism. After being denied the right to sing to an integrated audience at Constitution Hall by the Daughters of the American Revolution, her Easter Sunday concert on the nearby steps of the Lincoln Memorial on April 9, 1939 electrified listeners around the country and made her a household name in the United States. However, American listeners were late to the game—she was such a popular performer throughout Europe that “Marian fever” was a named phenomenon in (among other places) Sweden and Finland.
.
Beginning in 1927, Marian traveled frequently to Europe to study, train, and perform, and met with overwhelming success. Many of her voyages were taken on ships of the French Line, which at this point was one of the few major shipping companies to treat black passengers on an equal footing to white ones. Her first voyage, in October of 1927, was on board the S.S. “Ile de France”—a ship she sailed on several times. Her personal photo albums, held today in the in the @kislakcenter at the Penn Libraries (@upennlib) are liberally sprinkled with images of Marian, always dressed to the nines, in the first class quarters of several of the premiere liners of the day. Here we see her on board the “Normandie” sometime in 1935, first on the boat deck, then in the First Class Winter Garden, and then finally in the music room off the first class salon. Pictured with her is her longtime accompanist, Finnish pianist Kosti Vehanen.

Marian Anderson born February 27, 1897 – April 8, 1993 was a contralto and one of the most celebrated singers of the twentieth century. Most of her singing career was spent performing in concert and recital in major music venues and with famous orchestras throughout the United States and Europe. She made many recordings that reflected her broad performance repertoire of everything from concert literature to lieder to opera to traditional American songs and spirituals.  Anderson became an important figure in the struggle for black artists to overcome racial prejudice in the United States during the mid-twentieth century. In 1939, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) refused permission for Anderson to sing to an integrated audience in Constitution Hall. The incident placed Anderson into the spotlight of the international community on a level unusual for a classical musician. With the aid of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and her husband Franklin D. Roosevelt, Anderson performed a critically acclaimed open-air concert on Easter Sunday, April 9, 1939, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. She sang before a crowd of more than 75,000 people and a radio audience in the millions. Anderson continued to break barriers for black artists in the United States, becoming the first black person, American or otherwise, to perform at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City on January 7, 1955.

She participated in the civil rights movement in the 1960s, singing at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963. The recipient of numerous awards and honors, Anderson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1963, the Kennedy Center Honors in 1978, the National Medal of Arts in 1986, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1991. #BlackInBlackAndWhite #Contralto #Singer #Opera #firstblack #ToPerform #MetropolitanOpera #BlackCulture #MusicalCulture #Legendary #OperaSinger #MarianAnderson

So sad to have just learned about #JessyeNorman... My mom, a @howard1867 #alum, often talked about Ms. Norman staying in the same dorm during their undergraduate studies, filling the halls with #music. I loved #opera as a child, and would sneak to watch it on my parents' television--even took a #roadtrip to the #MarianAnderson House in #Philadelphia to see a performance and learn more about the #artist. Ironically, I just learned that Ms. Norman received a full scholarship to @howard1867 when competing in the Marian Anderson Vocal Competition... Her work included performing for two #presidential #inaugurations, countless performances, singing at #QueenElizabeth's #birthday celebration, the funeral service of #JacquelineKennedyOnassis, and the unveiling of the memorial in New York at the site of the #TwinTowers... The Soprano received countless honors for her work and started the #JessyeNormanSchoolOfTheArts, a tuition-free after-school program for economically disadvantaged youth in her #hometown of #Augusta #Georgia. Ms. Norman, we applaud you and thank you for your service. #TheArts #ItsAColorfulWorld #NeverGiveUp #NeverQuit #FightOn

Presented by the National Marian Anderson Museum & Historical Society "Each singer has his own way of learning a song. I like to hear the melody first, to get something from the music before I have begun serious work on the words. Then I read the poem apart from the music; I want to know what it is about. I want to know something about the way in which the song was written. I try to saturate myself in everything that relates to it. When I put words and music together I try to reach deeply into the mood. If I concentrate, and if there is nothing in the song to create unexpected difficulties, the task is not hard." ~ Marian Anderson We do so hope that you will support our Fall 2019 Giving Challenge!

1954
The New York Metropolitan Opera hired #MarianAnderson making her the #first black singer that the famed opera house signed on. Anderson would make her debut performance with the company three months later, on January 7, 1955.

Before the big hire, Anderson made a name for herself performing at venues like Carnegie Hall. However, she did encounter #barriersanddiscrimination because of her race. In 1939, the manager of Washington, D.C.’s Constitution Hall did not allow her to perform. When the public got word that this was due to Anderson’s race, first lady Eleanor Roosevelt spoke out against it. The Roosevelt’s later invited Anderson to perform at the #LincolnMemorial on Easter Sunday of that year, in front of a crowd of 75,000.

Marian Anderson (was), the first African American soloist ever to perform at the Metropolitan Opera House, sings “Ave Maria” on the stage of Carnegie Hall, in what was billed as her farewell performance, April 18, 1965

Located on Martin St. which is the home of our great Marian Anderson Museum (which was indeed Marian Anderson's residence) there were two beautiful giant trees which had been there for close to two hundred years. Yesterday the second of those two trees were brought down. With an emotional need to hold on to that part of Marian's history, we asked the tree company that was sadly removing the tree if we could keep part of the root and stump so that we could display it in the museum. The tree company ablidged us , brought it in and he even played a classical piece on the Steinway Piano. We were indeed able to get a piece of that tree and it will ever remain in the National Marian Anderson Museum so that men and women and children can look up this great oak and touch a part of what once was, part of our Marian Anderson History.

Marian Anderson (b. 1897) was one of the finest contraltos of all time. She considered herself an artist who “happened to be at the intersection of U.S. history when racism collided with conscience.” In 1955, after years marked by dogged racism and exclusion, she made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera. This appearance paved the way for the likes of Jessye Norman, Kathleen Battle, Leontyne Price, Florence Quivar + Denyce Graves. As recounted in the autobiography of her life, My Lord, What a Morning, is said that “Toscanini praised her, universities honored her, presidents invited her to sing for their inaugurals, kings decorated her…”, but it was her grandmother’s words, “don’t let it get good to you,” that grounded her in faith and humility throughout her life + over her impressive career.⁣
⁣
Beauford Delaney’s work, much like the art movements he straddled, hovered between strict realism and abstraction. Educated in European traditions, he coupled this training with African traditions, which were further influenced by his experiences in Harlem during the great Renaissance + Greenwich Village (NY). ⁣

#RIP #JessyeNorman

#blackgirlmagic 
Jessye Norman, la célèbre cantatrice américaine est morte

01Octobre 2019

À l’âge de 74 ans, la star de l’opéra s’est éteinte à New-York

La scène de l’opéra en deuil après avoir appris le décès de la célèbre chanteuse.

La cantatrice est morte des suites d’une septicémie qui a eu lieu suite aux complications d’une blessure à la colonne vertébrale selon un communiqué remonté par un porte-parole de la famille.

Jessy Norman est née le 15 septembre 1945 en Georgie dans un état encore soumis à la ségrégation. Issue d’une famille de cinq enfants, les parents de la chanteuse militaient pour une organisation pour le droit des afro- américains.

Jessy a décidé de prendre la relève en défendant tout au long de sa carrière des causes humanitaires et des luttes contre la faim. Au-delà d’être chanteuse, elle était symbole de résistance dans la lutte de nombreuses causes aux États-Unis.

L’icône avait interprété la Marseillaise place de la concorde à Paris, le 14 juillet 1989, lors des fêtes de commémoration de la révolution française.
À noter que Jessy Norman s’était produite plus de 80 fois au célèbre #Metropolitanopéra de New-York. « Je ne me souviens pas d’un moment dans ma vie, où je n’ai pas été en train d’essayer de chanter » expliquait-t-elle.

Entre #Gospel, #Opéra, ou même Jazz, la chanteuse a remporté cinq #Grammys en 2006. 
There are a few people of color in this field of music and we salute women like #JessyNorman , #leontyneprice , #gracebumbry, #mariananderson & so many others.

I was deeply saddened this morning when I heard the news that one of our greatest contemporary singers, Jessye Norman, had passed. You will always be missed. May you rest in peace.

Jessye Norman was born on the 15th of September, 1945 in Augusta, Georgia to Silas and Janie Norman. As a young girl, she performed gospel songs at her local church, and upon receiving a radio at the age of nine, she discovered the great voices of the revolutionary contralto Marian Anderson and the most famous spinto soprano of the time, Leontyne Price, which inspired her to pursue a career in opera. She graduated in 1965 with a degree in music from Howard University, and subsequently completed graduate studies at the University of Michigan School of Music.

She made her operatic debut as Elisabeth in Richard Wagner's

She made her operatic debut as Elisabeth in Richard Wagner's "Tannhäuser" at the Deutsche Oper Berlin in 1969, and debuted at the Metropolitan Opera in 1983 in the roles of both Cassandra and Dido in Berlioz's "Les Troyens". In 1989, she was invited to sing "La Marseillaise", the French national anthem, on Bastille Day to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution. She was a dramatic Falcon soprano, specialising in the works of Wagner and Richard Strauss. Her reportoire included the roles of Isolde, Sieglinde, Ariadne, Dido, Delilah, and even Carmen. Her interpretation of Strauss' "Four Last Songs" has been highly acclaimed. She had a highly resonant voice with a deep, warm timbre that completely blanketed even the largest of orchestras. In this clip, she performs the Liebestod from Wagner's "Tristan and Isolde" with the Vienna Philharmonic orchestra, conducted by Herbert von Karajan, recorded in 1987. #jessyenorman #opera #music #soprano #isolde #wagner #richardwagner #leontyneprice #mariananderson #dramaticsoprano #falconsoprano #strauss #didoandaeneas #fourlastsongs #beautiful #song #classicalmusic #baroquemusic #dramatic #mezzosoprano #herbertvonkarajan #karajan #brunhilde #sieglinde #carmen #delilah #samsonanddelilah #liebestod #bastille #lamarseillaise

Оперная певица исполняла роль Ульрико, гадалки в опере Джузеппе Верди «Un Ballo», когда в июне 1955 ее сфотографировал Ричард Аведон. Эта харизматичная дива известна тем, что стала первой афроамериканкой, которая спела в The Metropolitan Opera. 
Этот фото-портрет был впервые опубликован в ноябрьском номере журнала #HarpersBazaar за 1955 год. Теперь эти редкие фотографии представлены в нескольких музеях, среди них Музей Метрополитен в Нью-Йорке. Стартовая цена этой работы $60К.
