Since its inception, the Danbury Music Centre has been the center of music for Danbury and its environs. Its beginning in 1935 by Donald Tweedy, a nationally respected musician and music educator, espoused the need for a community to take charge of its music presentations. A unique and homegrown institution, the Danbury Music Centre provides local musicians of varying levels of accomplishment the opportunity to perform and bring the joy of music to themselves and to members of their community. Few organizations with this philosophy exist in the United States.
 
The performing groups of the Danbury Music Centre fill the musical needs of the community in a way not approached by any other institution. Musicians from 8 to 80 may be performers – entire families are involved, children and adults. Audience members from infant to senior citizen can attend all concerts free of charge. The Nutcracker Ballet, however, has a modest charge and tickets go on sale in November first to members, then to the public. As in past years, the popular and always capacity performance of Messiah will also take place in December. See the calendar listings for information about these and other concerts.
 
The Danbury Music Centre also sponsors a popular Summer Enrichment Program expecially appealing to children and teenagers. Registration begins in May. Call the Music Centre for a brochure.
 
The Music Centre is located in a beautifully restored 19th century building, formerly the public library. In 1994, the Danbury Common Council dedicated and named the rehearsal hall in honor of the late Marian Anderson, a world renowned contralto who was a resident of Danbury and served on the Danbury Music Centre Board of Directors.
