The concert is also a kick-off for The History Center's move to the new Tompkins Center for History and Culture in the former Tompkins Trust Building on the Commons' Bank Alley. The Convention and Visitors Bureau's downtown Visitors Center, Wharton Studio Museum, Historic Ithaca, Dorothy Cotton Institute, Community Arts Partnership, the Christopherson Center and the Discovery Trail will be among those be located at the Tompkins Center, where a major feature will be the restored Tommy Plane, made in Ithaca to train flyers during World War I.
The History Center is your generation-to-generation local history, education, and research center dedicated to helping people use the tools of history to understand the past, gain perspective on the present, and play an informed role in shaping the future. Music has been part of that flow of our past, present and future.
