Concordia Conservatory to Present 'Don't Know Much about Rock 'n Roll' Saturday, February 8 PDF Print Email

Feb. 5, 2014:  Concordia Conservatory of Music & Art will present Don’t Know Much About Rock 'n Roll on Saturday, February 8, at 11:00 am in the Schoenfeld Campus Center on the campus of Concordia College.

With a book by Rami Vamos, the show features Concordia Conservatory band Critical Point with Abby Carter, Will Cioffi, Tashi, Doma, Jim Grant, Luke Gray, and Matthew Pytosh and a cast including Ally Bruno, Olivia Damasco, Clare DeGennaro, Chris Landy, Michael Landy, Michael McMahon, Carmel Pact-Coblence, Matthew Pytosh, Zac Shearon, Katie Suss, and Renz Toledo. The show, directed by Greg Suss, is designed to truly engage the audience and enhance learning.  

Rock 'n roll has become so popular in Strumsville that it has taken over the economy. Most of the population goes to "rock factories" where they jam from nine to five. Harvey is a rebel who does not want to take the safe route and follow in his parents' hard rock path. Though Harvey is forced to study music in college and seems doomed to a life of heavy metal, he forms a band that sings only about the stock market, taxes, and financial topics. The result is a new style of music--one that everyone loves.

Rami Vamos shares the stage with other musicians and actors to bring original material to audiences of all ages. His prolific compositions of children's musicals include Monsterland, The Amazing Tale of Prince Pickles, Once Upon a Time Signature, and Introducing Wolfgang Amadeus Schmutzinberry, Egbert the Scaredy Cat, and Marsha the Martian. Mr. Vamos has also written music for theatrical productions, setting his own compositions to masterpieces from many periods, and has composed several solo and chamber compositions over the past few years, including a collaborative composition with guitarist Randall Avers called 12 Silly Songs for 12 Silly Strings. In the fall of 2006, Vamos was commissioned to write a musical titled The 12 Days of Christmas. Concordia Conservatory received a grant from the New York State Music Fund to commission this work. The musical was the subject of a three-segment documentary featured on Teen Kids News.

Mr. Vamos is on the faculty of the Hutchinson and Siwanoy Schools in Pelham, as well as Concordia Conservatory of Music & Art, where he is string department chair and is on the guitar faculty. He holds a BM from Oberlin College Conservatory and an MM from Yale University and has completed a New York City teaching fellowship that earned him an MEd from Queens College. He is also a teaching artist with The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $7.50 for children and seniors. To purchase tickets, please call 914-395-4507.

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.
