Marcia Klebanow Accompanist Chair

Marcia M. Klebanow was a great advocate of classical music in the Danbury, Connecticut, area for more than 60 years: through her guidance in leading the Danbury Concert Association to realize its mission of bringing live classical chamber music to the area; through her work with young people, fostering in them a love and understanding of music; through her own piano performances and piano teaching; and as a valued supporter of the Danbury Music Centre, having performed with all of DMC’s orchestral programs and Concert Chorus, and as a longtime supporter and member of DMC’s Board of Directors.

The Danbury Music Centre honors Marcia’s memory in a way befitting one of Danbury’s most versatile and beloved musicians, by paying particular homage to her piano expertise. To that end, the Danbury Music Centre has created an endowed chair to be known as “The Marcia Klebanow Accompanist Chair.” The Marcia Klebanow Accompanist Chair will fund the position of Piano Accompanist, a position Marcia held at Danbury Music Centre for many years.

Contributions will  be solicited on an annual basis, thus ensuring that Marcia’s name will be woven into the music of all the Danbury Music Centre’s Chorus performances for generations to come.
