Feb. 20, 2019:  Twenty-five Bronxville School singers and instrumentalists have been selected to perform for All-County music ensembles by the prestigious Westchester County School Music Association for its 2019 festival concerts.

The Elementary All-County Chorus will include fifth-graders Grayson Curran (soprano), Anabella Davis (alto), Katie Fezza (soprano), and Peyton Levine (alto) and sixth-graders Fiona Barr (alto), Dakota Delli Colli (soprano), Catalina Gallipoli (alto), Charlotte Golimbu (alto), Isabel Haller (soprano), Olivia Patterson (soprano), Brooke Thompson (soprano), and Lena Vermette (alto).

The Intermediate All-County Chorus will include seventh-grader Savannah Delli Colli (alto) and eighth-graders Kaela Schubert (alto) and Mota Rodembusch (soprano). The students were selected to participate in the All-County choruses by school music teachers Marina Brown and Pamela Simpson.  “We are very proud of the hard work our singers have been putting forth to make this concert a success,” said Brown, the elementary school choral director. “They are singing challenging music in several languages that takes many hours of practice at home and long rehearsals outside of the school day. They are representing the Bronxville Music Department wonderfully."

Eighth-grader Aidan McBride (french horn) and ninth-grader Alice Vranka (clarinet) were selected to participate in the Intermediate All-County Band. “I am very proud of the work our students have done and am excited to have the opportunity to work with them,” said Vincent Iannelli, the middle and high school band director. The band and orchestra students were selected through competitive auditions that required students to perform a prepared piece, play scales, and sight-read.

Fifth-grader Caitlin Burke (viola) will perform with the Elementary All-County Orchestra, while sixth-grader Sophia Ikiri (violin) and seventh-graders Simos Dimas (violin), Madeline Lescott (viola), and Ria Mueller (cello) will perform with the Junior All-County Orchestra. Members of the Intermediate All-County Orchestra will feature eighth-grader Remi Mellinghoff (violin) and ninth-graders Tyler Tanaka-Wong (viola) and Patrick Wu (cello). “This is a tremendous accomplishment for these students,” said Claire Stancarone, middle school orchestra director. “We wish them the best for their upcoming performance.”

Smith, Heaven’s Light by Steven Reineke, Chorale and Shaker Dance 2 by John Zdechlik, and The Liberty Bell March by John Philip Sousa. “It is a significant honor to be invited to direct an All-County music ensemble,” said Denise Lutter, orchestra director and Performing Arts Department curriculum leader. “We are very proud of our colleague for receiving this accolade and grateful for her many outstanding contributions to the Bronxville School Performing Arts Program.”

Bronxville Elementary School band director Sharon Slote has been selected to direct the Intermediate All-County Band.

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.
