Concordia College to Open Conservatory in Stamford, Connecticut PDF Print Email

Apr. 12, 2017:  Concordia College announces the opening of Concordia Conservatory-Stamford in September of 2017. The Conservatory, a community music school and a division of Concordia College-New York, will be located at St. John's Lutheran Church at 884 Newfield Avenue in Stamford.

Since 1977, Concordia Conservatory has been known for its high-quality music offerings for early childhood, youth, and adult students. The establishment of an extended campus for music education in Stamford meets the needs of Fairfield County, where a community music school does not currently exist. This expansion also allows Concordia to join a thriving arts environment.

"Under Kathleen Suss's gifted tutelage, Concordia will now extend the blessings of a world-class music education to a new region with an exceptional new partner," stated Concordia College's president, Rev. John A. Nunes, PhD.

Concordia College and its conservatory serve students as performers, listeners, and lifelong learners. Music is an essential part of a quality education and a powerful contributor to quality of life in a community. The site of St. John's Lutheran Church in Stamford is ideally suited to serve as the home of Concordia Conservatory-Stamford. The St. John's Church property consists of the main sanctuary building, a large educational structure that houses offices and classrooms and is connected to the main sanctuary building, and the Inna-Ellen Chapel.

David Hendrickson, St. John's congregational president, enthusiastically commented, "St. John's Lutheran Church is pleased to host the Concordia Music Conservatory. This partnership lives out the core of our mission statement, 'All are Welcome,' as both the congregation and Concordia seek to make a difference in the community we serve. The Conservatory's and our congregation's outreach to Stamford, Fairfield County, and beyond will be extensive."

Concordia is committed to bringing the arts to all people regardless of age, ability, ethnic origin, or financial situation and will serve as a music education resource for the Fairfield County community. Staffed with a highly accomplished faculty, the school will offer private music instruction in all instruments including voice, group and chamber music instruction, music theory, ear-training, composition and songwriting, early childhood music classes, summer music camps, chamber music series, and an honors music program. In addition, the Conservatory will administer music outreach programs in the community. Kathleen Suss serves as its 20-year executive director.

Please visit or call 914-395-4507 for registration, admissions, and programming information.

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.
