Founded in 1927, this Farmington-based organization is dedicated to preserving the memory of Lillian Nordica. The association maintains the Nordica Homestead Museum and promotes educational outreach, including an annual scholarship to a student of singing in Maine.
Our Mission is to preserve and perpetuate the historic and cultural legacy of Madam Lillian Nordica, her birthplace and collections, and to make relevant her many contributions to opera, women’s rights and the world through interactive educational outreach.
Much needed repairs and restorations in the Nordica Homestead Museum will soon appear as a "Wish List" on this site. People who wish to donate to a specific need may do so, and a plaque in their honor will be displayed by the object in the museum.
On August 17, 1911, Lillian Nordica performed in her hometown of Farmington for the last time in the auditorium that now bears her name. August 17 was later designated as "Nordica Day" in 1972 by Maine's Governor Curtis.
The Nordica Memorial Association awards an annual scholarship to a student in Maine who aspires to a career in classical singing. The winner of the Nordica Scholarship performs on Nordica Day in Farmington. The most recent winner is Christopher Garrepy.
