Chamber Music Concert at The Reformed Church on Sunday, March 4 PDF Print Email


By Dr. Sándor Szabó, Minister of Music and Organist, The Reformed Church of Bronxville

Feb. 21, 2018:  The Reformed Church of Bronxville is proud to present an afternoon of delightful chamber music on Sunday, March 4, at 3:00 pm.

The concert will include the beloved Piano Trio in B-flat major by Schubert and Fauré's passionate Piano Quartet in C minor.

Dr. Christopher Collins Lee, a violinist, will be returning this year. He became a protégé of Zino Francescatti's at the age of sixteen, traveling with him throughout Europe on his final tours. He studied violin and composition at Curtis and Juilliard, earned a doctorate degree, was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, and has been awarded four honorary doctorate degrees. His other principal teachers were Dorothy DeLay, Arthur Grumiaux, Henryk Szeryng, and Nathan Milstein.           

Lee has also received top prizes in the Carl Flesch International Competition, the Tibor Varga International Competition, and the International Bach Competition, and he has received the Lion D’or of the French government, a Guggenheim Grant, the Belgian American Award, and The Fritz Kreisler Prize.

As an Official Musical Ambassador of the U.S. Department of State, he has played thousands of concerts worldwide under its auspices, including forty solo concert tours of Asia. It is interesting to note that one of his recordings was chosen to represent human culture on the Voyager Time Capsule, which is now leaving our solar system. He is currently concertmaster of fourteen international orchestras. 

Dr. Lee will be joined by violist Milan Milisavljević, cellist Andrew Janss, and the church's minister of music, Dr. Sándor Szabó, at the piano

The concert is free and a reception will follow in the Edwards Room.

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
