Community: Danbury


Tour the birthplace of Charles Ives: musical maverick, father of American classical music, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer.

Event Details

"The music of Charles Ives, which on first acquaintance generally strikes listeners as willfully eccentric, grew from a 'long foreground' as Emerson said of Walt Whitman's equally eccentric Leaves of Grass. Ives well understood how insistently the past remained present in his work." --Jan Swafford, Charles Ives, A Life With Music.

Join us this summer for the soft opening of the Ives Birthplace. Take a guided tour of the birthplace of Danbury's Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Charles Edward Ives. Learn about the sights and sounds that influenced Ives, as well as the Danbury he would have known so well as a young man.

We are most grateful for our generous benefactor, Savings Bank of Danbury, for making the re-opening of the Ives Birthplace possible!
