Nzinga Center to Host Annual Women’s Concert

NEW BRITAIN – The Queen Ann Nzinga Center will host its 9th annual Connie Wilson Collins Exceptional Women Concert, honoring outstanding women from the Greater Bristol, Plainville and New Britain community on March 24.

The celebration includes live musical performances, poetry, dance and tributes to the honorees. It will be held Trinity-on-Main on 19 Chestnut Street, New Britain at 4 p.m.

Betty Harris and Nzinga’s Daughters and more will perform.

The event was renamed in 2014 in honor of Constance “Connie” Renee Wilson
Collins (1928-2013), an African-American woman who made a tremendous
contribution to the Greater New Britain community. Collins worked to help
people reach their full potential through her work in political, spiritual,
fraternal and nonprofit organizations.

Collins is an exemplary role model for the children and teens who
participate in the Queen Ann Nzinga Center programs, says Executive
Director Dayna Snell, and she continues to inspire youth to reach their
full potential and use their talents for the good of the community.

The 2018 celebration will honor Valeriana DeBrito of Rocky Hill; Pamela Floyd-
Cranford of Manchester: Pamela Kristoff of Plainville; Eileen McNulty of
Bristol; Tracy Nixon Moore of New Britain and Mayor Erin Stewart of New

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for students and seniors. Tickets are available on our website at at the door at the event, or contacting QANC at 860-229-8389.

All proceeds help fund programming for the Queen Ann Nzinga Center, a nonprofit
which emphasizes artistic expression and teamwork to build program
participants’ skills. The Queen Ann Nzinga Center and Trinity-on-Main are
collaborating on the event.
