By Plamena Quintavalla, Bronxville School Reporter for Syntax

Nov. 16, 2016:  Six Bronxville High School students have been selected to Area All-State music ensembles by the Westchester County School Music Association (WCSMA) for its 2016 Area All-State Festival Concert, which was held on November 10 at SUNY Purchase.

Juniors Eva Cagliostro (string bass) and Xavier Zhang (violin) were selected to perform with the symphony orchestra, junior Delfina Maldonado (violin) was selected for the string orchestra, and junior Sophia Sulimirski (oboe) was selected for the band. Selected to perform with the women's chorus were junior Margaux Frohlich (soprano) and senior Abby Geiling (soprano). 

Performers were chosen by WCSMA on the basis of auditions at last spring's New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Solo Evaluation Festival and recommendations from their music teachers. WCSMA, which is the county's arm of NYSSMA, sponsors the Area All-State Music Festival each year for eligible Westchester sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

Bronxville Artist Dara Kane to Exhibit at Rye Arts Center from November 2 to December 3 PDF Print Email


By Dara Kane, Bronxville Artist

Nov. 9, 2016:  I have been living in Bronxville for almost ten years. It is a wonderful community, but for me, it also serves as great inspiration for my artwork. 

As I walk through Bronxville Village, I still marvel at the natural beauty all around me. I never tire of my surroundings and it nurtures my creativity. 

I have been collaging for over twenty years and have been regularly exhibiting my artwork in Southern Westchester. 

Currently, three of my collages are on exhibit in the Small Works Exhibition at the Rye Arts Center in Rye from November 2 to December 3. An opening reception will be held there on Saturday, November 19, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at 51 Milton Road in Rye. 

Collage to me is about making all the parts and pieces fit together. When everything is working, it is a very exciting feeling. 

I find inspiration everywhere, especially in nature, organic forms, and very graphic elements. I use recycled papers. I never shop for materials and prefer to find things to use. So, in a way, I am giving materials that might be discarded a new purpose. 

To see my gallery of collages, visit my website at
