school_graduate 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Director’s College: Connecticut Women & War     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Leah Farrell   860-673-6791   lfarrell@farmingtonlibraries.org
   

Women have been involved in military conflicts from the beginning of time; some as warriors, some as spies and others who made the munitions or simply called for peace.  Connecticut women are among the finest and bravest who have stood for their cause – sometimes defying gender norms, and often without the recognition they deserved.  CWHF Inductees prove that women are just as tough as men and will inspire others to shatter gender barriers. Learn about a teenager who helped save Danbury during the Revolutionary War, how Harriet Beecher Stowe sowed the seeds of conflict leading to the Civil War, and how Margaret Bourke-White’s photography brought civilians face to face with the war front for the first time.

Presented by the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame.

The multi-talented five-some The KC Sisters put a fresh new spin on the term “Sister Act.” Harkening back to the heyday of family groups, with a rootsy, Americana sound that incorporates folk, country, gospel, R&B and jazz.

What sets The KC Sisters apart from any other group of musical siblings or indie bands is their musical diversity, transcendent ease with three and four part harmonies, and the fact that each sister is a multi-talented vocalist and musician skilled in a variety of instruments. Deanna (18) and Noelle (16), who wrote “Daddy Came Home” with their father, the group’s producer and arranger Chris Casey, play violin, piano, drums, guitar and bass. Their younger sisters are 14 year old Tasha (violin, drums, piano, bass) and 12 year olds Elise (violin, cello, bass, piano, drums) and Kathleen (violin, bass, drums, piano). Their shows include multi-harmonized vocals, instrumentals, country fiddling, a capella hymns, pop, jazz, standards and country music.

All ages welcome! Please register.
