More About Remembering Dave: A Brubeck Family Album

To celebrate Dave Brubeck’s Centennial
Exhibition Opening: February 21
At the Wilton Historical Society

President Barack Obama stated, “In order to understand America, you have to understand jazz, and in order to understand jazz, you have to understand Dave Brubeck” when he bestowed him with a Kennedy Center Honor at the White House in 2009. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of jazz legend – and Wilton’s own — Dave Brubeck, the Wilton Historical Society will present Remembering Dave: A Brubeck Family Album. Opening Friday, February 21, 2020, the exhibition incorporates material from Dave Brubeck: Jazz Ambassador which detailed his illustrious 70-year career and was presented at Jazz at Lincoln Center soon after Brubeck’s death. As a pianist, bandleader and composer, Dave Brubeck (1920-2012) is widely acknowledged as one of America’s most significant post-swing era jazz musicians, creating a body of music that was bold and accessible. The exhibition also highlights other facets of his life such as his impact as a composer, a performer, a family man and civil rights activist. The Remembering Dave: A Brubeck Family Album exhibition will present additional materials that speak to Dave’s life in Wilton with his wife Iola, and kids Darius, Matt, Chris, Dan and Cathy.

Free for Wilton Historical Society members; $10 entrance fee for non-member adults, free for under 18.

The exhibition will run through April 18, 2020.

Dave Brubeck 100 is the world-wide celebration of the 100th birthday of Dave Brubeck, the jazz composer, pianist, cultural ambassador, and visionary musician, which will take place on December 6, 2020.
