Music at the Museum with Troy Cook


In 1910, in an effort to boost morale and heal the wounds left behind by a tumultuous strike at the Bethlehem Steel plant, then president Charles Schwab formed the Bethlehem Steel Company Band. The National Museum of Industrial History is bringing music to the museum with a memorable evening featuring a special performance by American baritone Troy Cook of Opera Philadelphia. Guests will have a chance to soothe their souls with elegant performances by Mr. Cook and step back in time to explore the Museum’s galleries with expert guides. Wine and light appetizers will be served.

All proceeds benefit the Museum’s ongoing educational programs and exhibits and the care and preservation of its unique collections.
