Opera in Savannah

May 24th, 2012 by Dresser Palmer House

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;Opera in Savannah 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.

Discovering Savannah’s Black History, Culture and Heritage

January 8th, 2012 by Dresser Palmer House

Black Heritage TourAfter 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.

PACKAGE HIGHLIGHTS:

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)
