Celebrate Ancona at the Bridgeport Arts Center the Evening of April 21!

Join us in celebrating 55 years of the Ancona School at Studio 55, our 2018 Gala! It will be a night of merriment and fellowship as we honor members of our faculty and community. This year’s festivities include a silent auction, a fabulous raffle, dinner, and disco dancing the night away.
