Music Conservatory of Westchester Celebrates 90th Anniversary

Celebrating a milestone year never sounded so good! The Music Conservatory of Westchester invites the Westchester County community to a 90th Anniversary Kick-off and Open House at its White Plains location on Saturday, October 5 from 11am through 3pm. The open house will offer free demo classes and will showcase Conservatory student performances representing an array of musical genres, while sharing in the joy of making music for 90 years.

At this event, attendees will experience first-hand the magic that occurs within the Conservatory’s walls. Explore the variety of musical ensembles and performance opportunities offered at the Conservatory while attending the Anniversary Kick-Off and Open House, and enjoy impressive, entertaining student performances. An immersive musical instrument petting zoo will also bring youngsters up-close to some of the many instruments offered for lessons at the nonprofit community music school.

What a fun way to celebrate music and the Music Conservatory of Westchester’s 90th anniversary!

From its 1929 launch at Hyatt House in Scarsdale, to White Plains locations at Burling Avenue and Soundview Avenue, to the move to its current home at 216 Central Avenue, the Conservatory has had numerous “Karmic Transformations,” as its 2001 Best of Westchester plaque states. A new transformational project will enable the Conservatory to play a significant role in bridging traditional music education with 21st century technology-based innovation. To be constructed in 3,500 square feet of unfinished space in the Conservatory building, the new facilities will include a Digital Piano Lab, Recording Studio, Percussion Studio, additional Music Therapy Studio, and large Rehearsal Studio. The Recording Studio will be networked to the Percussion Studio and to the school’s Recital Hall, which will enable the Conservatory to make quality recordings of performances and music sessions.

This major construction project is made possible with a $500,000 grant award from the New York State Regional Economic Development Corporation, requiring a dollar for dollar match from friends of the Conservatory. While at the 90th Anniversary Kick-off and Open House, learn how this endeavor will impact 7,500 music students in the greater Westchester County community over the next 5 years and how you can contribute to making a difference in bringing music technology to the next generation at the Music Conservatory of Westchester.
