Concordia Conservatory Announces Awards of Distinction to Three Local Teens

By Marilou Yacoub, Administrative Coordinator, Concordia Conservatory

Sept. 8, 2021: Concordia Conservatory is delighted to announce the recipients of the 2020-21 Awards of Distinction. This year’s recipients are: Valentino Angelani, flute (age 12), Masha Lekovic, flute (age 13), and Sarah Angevine, voice (age 14).

Nominated by their faculty, these students exhibited extraordinary dedication and commitment to learning and performing their craft. Their names will be added to a special plaque displayed in the Conservatory’s Stein Hall.

The Awards of Distinction is an honors program created for Conservatory students who truly excel in their musical pursuits. The award is presented annually prerequisites including enrollment in individual lessons; solo performance and chamber ensemble participation. Conservatory flute faculty Clare Hoffman, nominated Valentino and Masha and had this to say: “Valentino shows a precocious level of musicianship and intellectual curiosity. He is a natural flute player, with a wonderful, mature concept of tone. Masha is a wonderful young flute player. She recently received First Class Honours on her Royal Conservatory Level 4 Practical Exam. Her musicality makes her a joy to listen to. Both are dedicated young musicians and are very deserving of this award!”

Conservatory voice faculty Julie Schmidt’s nomination of Sarah Angevine included this: “Sarah has shown outstanding achievement in voice, fulfilling all of the requirement for the Award of Distinction. Her warm voice and expressive artistry delights audiences whether she is singing in a show, as a soloist, or in a group. It has been my pleasure and privilege to work with Sarah for the past six years, and I am confident we will see much more from her in the future.”

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.
