The Celebrating Portia White exhibition features a collection of photographs and portraits, vintage recordings, and treasured personal items, many which are rare, one of a kind and generously shared by Portia White’s family.

Portia White symbolizes the catalyst for the Talent Trust. In 1944, members of the Halifax Ladies Club, along with voice teacher Ernesto Vinci, successfully advocated to the city of Halifax and the province of Nova Scotia for unprecedented financial support towards White's studies in New York. White ascended to become one of the best singers of the 20th century.
