The musical movie team includes composer Chris Landy, 8-time Emmy Award-winning Executive Producer/Director Alan Weiss and Writer/Director Greg Suss who has staged 20 Conservatory holiday productions and written 5 shows over the 23-year history.

In addition to the premiere, the movie had a showing at The Picture House in Bronxville on December 20.

Since 1999, the Conservatory’s annual tuition-free holiday musical has been a beloved community institution and an effective theatre arts outreach program, supported by generous donors who have given over $1 million, seen by 18,000 enthusiastic audience members and performed by 1,600 performers. It provides area youth and young adults to participate, without regard to family financial situation and disability. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the cast, production team and staff of Concordia Conservatory and yes, “It Takes A Holiday Village” indeed.

Bronxville Public Library
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.
