Six Bronxville High School Students Perform at National Choir Conference in Ohio PDF Print Email


Contributed by Michael Ganci, Syntax, for The Bronxville School

Apr. 10, 2019:  Six Bronxville High School students performed with the Organization of American Kodály Educators’ National Conference Choirs, a high-quality choral program featured at the annual OAKE National Conference in Columbus, Ohio, from March 20 to 23.

The national conference, which brought together well-known educators and conductors, culminated with a choral concert on the final night of the conference. The students were selected through a rigorous audition process.

Sophomore Michael Weild performed with the chamber ensemble, which performed nine pieces, all a cappella, under the direction of esteemed Hungarian conductor Peter Erdei. Junior Alice O’Connell, sophomore Caroline Palermo, and freshmen Eliza Brennan, Maggie Lockwood, and Anna Maicon performed with the concert women’s choir, which performed under the direction of conductor Andrea Solya.

“Having an opportunity to perform such challenging music with like-minded musicians is an incredible honor for my students,” choral director Pamela Simpson said. “The students worked independently as well as during chorus time to learn and memorize the challenging music. At the conference, they spent eight hours in rehearsal every day preparing for their concert in the Mershon Auditorium.”

The Organization of American Kodály Educators holds a conference in a different city each year. The organization aims to support music education and promote universal music literacy and lifelong music making.

Books & Culture

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.
