Sometimes in Savannah our theatre options are limited. So it’s always great to see some fantastic options when it comes to music. I am so looking forward to V.O.I.C.Experience coming to Savannah on Thursday, June 7th at the Christ Church Savannah, GA; 28 Bull St at Johnson Square. This will be a benefit concert featuring the rising stars of Opera from around the nation with special guests from the Savannah Philharmonic Chorus and area High Schools. V.O.I.C.Experience was formed by Metropolitan Opera/Grammy Award Winner Opera Star, baritone Sherrill Milnes when he decided to create a means for singers to advance in their careers he did so by giving them the highest level of educators and more importantly, the opportunity to perform for people who might not ever see a Broadway show or Opera… with the help of his wife, soprano, Maria Zouves, V.O.I.C.Experience – “VE” – was founded in 2001. They work in several intensive programs throughout the year and guide singers in directions that lead to their success, including a program oat our own GA Southern University. One of my favorite parts of this upcoming performance is that on Sunday, June 3 area High School students get to have their own performance and receive feedback from the same vocalists that will be performing on Thursday, June 7th. This I am sure will help instill some new passion with our own upcoming coming stars from Savannah.
Call NOW to Book your Room at the Dresser Palmer House, June 3 at 2pm & June 7 at 7:30pm, for what promises to be two very enjoyable performances.
Dresser Palmer House Celebrates Martin Luther King Day and Black History Month with a Special Guest, Isaac Newton Farris
January 16th, 2012 by Dresser Palmer House
With the holiday today, Martin Luther King Day, and Black History Month getting ready to kick-off along with Savannah’s Black Heritage Festival beginning; I had to sit back and think about how honored I was to have the SCLC President Isaac Newton Farris, Jr stay at the Dresser Palmer House this weekend. Not only is he SCLC President, but also Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s nephew. Mr. Farris was born in Atlanta, Georgia and attended his uncle’s alma mater, Morehouse College where he majored in Political Science. Mr. Farris’ background has given him a unique prospective and real life experience on some of the most pressing issues of our times. Growing up in one of America’s most socially and politically active families has provided him with a front row seat, witnessing how policy is formulated and implemented.
Even though the SCLC kept his schedule pretty full, he did find some time to enjoy the company of the other guests at the Inn during Wine & Hors D’oeuvres Hour. It was my pleasure to give him some history of the house and show him some of that Southern Hospitality that we are known for here in Savannah. My favorite part was sharing some of the rich Black Heritage/History in Savannah with some of the guests, especially the tie Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has with Second African Baptist Church. Did you know that Dr. King preached the first draft of his “I Have a Dream” speech at this church?
During the entire month of January and February Dresser Palmer House is partnering with three other Savannah Inns in a tribute to Black History month. Call Now to Reserve your Black Heritage Package.
The Dresser Palmer House is a premiere Bed and Breakfast in the Historic District of Savannah, GA.

After 16 years in Savannah I thought I had a good grasp on the history of our fair city. Then I took the Day Clean Journeys’ African American History Tour and learned that I only have a pinkie grasp of Savannah’s Black History. Four inns of Savannah have decided to collaboratively create a package that will highlight some of the best but lesser known historical sites of our city’s black history, culture and heritage.
While I was on the African American History Tour, I was amazed to learn how many “firsts” occurred in Savannah. Let’s start with First African Baptist Church, built in 1861, this church was the first African-American Baptist Church in North America and served as part of the Underground Railroad. Not to be outdone by First Bryan Baptist Church, the oldest continuous African-American Baptist Church in the United States. Then we have, West Broad Street School, 89 years the Scarbrough House spent as the first city-supported school for black students in Savannah. And finally, the McKane Hospital and Nursing School was the site of the first hospital in Savannah to train African-American doctors and nurses.
There is much to learn, so many places to explore, and so little time but we believe we have packaged the best of the best, Savannah’s Black History and the Civil Rights Movement. Join the thousands of visitors from around the world who have embraced the story of Savannah’s black history, culture and heritage. The Dresser Palmer House, an Historic Inn is proud to offer this Black Heritage Tour package.
1. Three days and two nights in one of our selected queen rooms with check-in on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday in January or February 2012.
2. Day Clean Journeys African American History Tour for Two, including admission to select venues
3. Secret Map of Soul Food Destinations and specific must see Black History/Heritage Sites
4. Cost? Priceless (or $398 plus tax and gratuity)
