Last Performance in Danville

In this building, on January 30, 1897, the composer Frederick Delius (1862-1934) and his traveling companions - Halfdan Jebe and the "stowaway" Princess de Cysteria - gave a public concert at the Danville College for Young Ladies, later Stratford College.

Delius' colleagues, billed as Professor Lemmanoff, violinist, and Madame Donodossola, soprano, and the noted composer himself, played to a delighted audience, some of whom took notice also of the "big feet of the Princess."

Many Danvillians remeber Delius from years earlier when he taught music and languages in 1885-86 at the Roanoke Female College, now Averett University.

The 1897 event was the composer's last visit to Danville, and this building is the only place known to survive locally where Delius performed in concert.
