Read the full original article from Townsquare Delaware.

Among the exciting changes taking place on Wilmington’s Market Street is the grand opening of the Delaware History Museum and the new Center for African American Heritage, which will take place on October 1, 2016.

Visitors can expect a thoroughly enjoyable and educational mix of new and old stories from the newly installed exhibition, Delaware: One State, Many Stories, including an exciting exploration of Delaware’s contributions to the world of jazz.

Clifford Brown may be among the best known of Wilmington’s heritage of jazz musicians. In his brief life, just twenty-six years, he made the jazz community—both in the US and internationally—take notice of his dazzling bebop style. He is credited as one of the greatest trumpeters in jazz history.

But Clifford Brown doen’t stand alone. He studied with Robert “Boysie” Lowery, a jazz teacher and saxophonist, who taught many of Delaware’s talented jazz musicians over the years. Gerald Chavis, also a trumpeter, studied with Lowery, and his trumpet will be on display in the new exhibition.

Attendees of the grand opening event will be treated to a New Orleans-style Second Line led by Mr. Chavis, immediately following the ribbon cutting.

Join us on October 1, 2016 from 10 am – 4 pm to not only learn more about Delaware’s jazz history but take part in the historic block party commemorating the grand opening. The free event will be full of family-friendly fun, tours of the new museum, performances, food trucks, music, and much more.
