The Aurora Historical Society will celebrate the late Maud Powell for her posthumous Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement  with a Grammy party Friday, Jan. 31.

The Grammy party will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Pierce Art and History Center, 20 E. Downer, Aurora.

A former Aurora resident, Powell dove into the international classical music world at age 18 as a violinist and spent her artistic life elevating the taste of Americans and exploiting the gramophone as a way to spread her music, according to a news release.

Powell was given the award in L.A. on Jan. 25, along with other notables, such as the Beatles and the Isley Brothers.

The event is free, but donations are appreciated.
