Music in the Garden: Nekita Waller

August 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for Music in the Garden with Nekita Waller!

// ABOUT NEKITA WALLER //

There was never a question that music would be a part of Nekita Waller’s life. From her stage debut as a child at the famous Apollo Theater in Harlem, to singing the National Anthem to thousands of spectators at professional sporting events as an adult, music defines Nekita’s life.

Nekita’s diverse musical journey has taken her through chorus groups, musical theater, Hartt School of Music, Gospel in church, and mentoring and performing with many independent artists.

As a singer and performer since childhood herself, Nekita knows the value of music to children. Nekita is mentoring music students, serving as a musical director with teens on an original play, delivering songwriting workshops, and performing at libraries and school assemblies.

Nekita performs throughout the region bringing a mix of pop, Motown, soul, Jazz and classic rock favorites with original music. As a soloist, she sings the National Anthem for the NBA, WNBA, and DIV I College sports teams. Nekita is an experienced studio session artist as a recording artist, lending her vocal talent on projects with Grammy and Emmy award-winning producers.

“Music is my purest form of communication. It doesn’t care how much money you have, where you were born, the color of your skin, or how old you are,” notes Nekita. “There is no greater feeling or purpose than to help another person. Whether it is to make someone smile, dance, brighten their day or help them reach a better level of themselves, this is life’s greatest award.”

// ABOUT THE MUSIC IN THE GARDEN SERIES //

Stanley-Whitman House’s Music in the Garden Series presents artists and shows differently than a club show- instead our house concert is more up close and personal. All of the artifice is stripped away. No stage, no dressing rooms, no barrier between the performer and the audience. The SWH Music in the Garden series is more like being one-step-closer to the way music was intended- an artist traveling from town to town, telling stories and making friends. Come check this out!

// ABOUT STANLEY-WHITMAN HOUSE //

In 1935, Stanley-Whitman House was established as Farmington’s first museum. It is a nationally recognized historic house museum and living history center that teaches through the collection, preservation, research, and dynamic interpretation of the history and culture of early Farmington, Connecticut. Programs, events, classes, and exhibits encourage visitors of all ages to immerse themselves in history by doing, acting, questioning, and engaging in colonial life and the ideas that formed the foundation of that culture.

Located in the historic village of Farmington, the museum facility centers on a circa 1720 National Historic Landmark house furnished with period antiques to reflect the everyday activities of Colonial life in Connecticut. Surrounding the house are period-raised bed gardens, an apple orchard, and heritage stone walls.

The public service areas of the museum, constructed in 2004, include a modern classroom, a period tavern room, a post-and-beam Welcome Center, a research library, an exhibit gallery, the Nancy Conklin History Gallery, and a collection storage area.

In addition to managing Memento Mori, Farmington’s ancient cemetery on Main Street, and the Village Green, located at the intersection of Routes 4 and 10, the museum also oversees the Scott Swamp Cemetery on Route 6. The Stanley-Whitman House is supported in part by the Farmington Village Green and Library Association.
