“Pageant!”, is a musical about how a traditional Christmas Pageant changes and brings the community together. The story centers around the parish of St. Genesius. They are falling on hard times and the answer to their revival is to produce a new and exciting Christmas Pageant! Taking a more modern approach, see how the adults, kids and the whole community come together in this one act musical comedy.

In its 22-year history, the musical has been seen by 18,000 enthusiastic audience members and performed by 1,600 performers since its first performance. The Concordia Conservatory annual holiday community musical provides an opportunity for area youth to participate, without regard to family financial situation and disability.

excellence in education and performance.
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.
