Concordia Conservatory's "Music from the Heart" Benefit was an Enchanting Evening

By Kathleen Suss

Feb. 14, 2024: Concordia Conservatory presented its gala benefit, “MUSIC FROM THE HEART,” as part of the Hoch Chamber Music Series at The Reformed Church of Bronxville followed by a dinner dance at The Bronxville Field Club.

The music was sublime with Brahms’ String Quintet No. 2 in G Major performed by violinists Liz Lim-Dutton, Emanouil Manolov, violists Lawrence Dutton, SoHui Yun, and cellist Paul Watkins in the first half, followed by a cabaret show with an elegant and exquisite performance by Broadway acclaimed Nikki Renée Daniels with James Lowe, John Redsecker & Michael Kuennan.

Conservatory faculty Bob Gingery’s band, Uptown Express, “rocked” the dinner dance following at The Bronxville Field Club.

An evening as enchanting as this past Saturday owes its success to the dedication and hard work of all involved.

We extend our gratitude to the 2024 Conservatory Benefit Committee: Anne Angevine, Margie Ball, Jennifer Cebenoyan, Selene Contreras, Brigid Garelik, Julie Latham, Kathryn McGrath, Anne Prost, Michele Rohr, Erin Seuffert, Laurie Slaughter, Kristin Smith, Emily Tyree, and Nancy Yohannan.  The efforts of this committee made the evening a success for the artists, audience and guests.

Additionally, we wish to express our appreciation to the Conservatory Junior Committee - Shay Armand, Sabrina Belke, Alex Cebenoyan, Ila David, Alison DeFilippo, Caris Erman-Thurmond, Aaliyah Hartenstein, Valeria Huerta, Leah Jones, Kit Knapp, Athina Lekovic, Samantha Lopez, Ciara McAndrew, Laura Sanchez, Sarah Thomas, and An Qi Wang. Their commitment ensured that the event radiated enthusiasm and joy.

The Conservatory benefit, “MUSIC FROM THE HEART,” supported the Conservatory’s ongoing effort to make music available to all.

Funds raised from the evening supported the scholarships and outreach, music and art therapy, concert series, the tuition-free annual holiday community musical, endowment, and unrestricted funds for the Bronxville and Stamford campuses

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.
