Dec. 8, 2021: Over 700 people attended performances of Concordia Conservatory’s 22nd annual holiday community musical, “PAGEANT!” with shows on December 4 & 5. The cast of youth from ages 8 – 25 hailed from Westchester County and Fairfield County (CT). 

At this season of giving and sharing, this story is of Concordia Conservatory “playing on” as an independent community music school in Westchester County partnering with the Bronxville School District for a true COMMUNITY effort even as Concordia College closed. 

Bronxville Mayor Mary Marvin opened the path for the production to be presented at the Bronxville School during the summer and the team at Bronxville School headed by Superintendent Roy Montesano and Dan Carlin with Mike Lee and Brian Parker hosted the community musical with a welcoming and collaborative spirit.

Since 1999, the Conservatory’s annual tuition-free holiday musical has been a beloved community institution and an effective theatre arts outreach program.  In its 22-year history, the musical has been seen by 18,000 enthusiastic audience members and performed by 1,600 performers supported by $1,000,000 in donations since its first performance.

The PAGEANT! cast included Xochi Aburto, Ciara Andrews, Natalie Beit, Zach Bostock, Anyi Chen, Elizabeth Cioffi, Cindy DeMaj, Nate Dower, Annabella Ferraro, Simon Grogan, Luke Kennedy, Kit Knapp,  Ariya Mattu, Lila Mattu, Chloe Mayer, Kelly McWilliams, Maeve McWilliams, Porter Rao, Jeff Rohr, Caroline Ryan, Laura Sanchez, Alexandra Seuffert, Katarina Seuffert, Lauren Seuffert, Lilly Slaughter, Luke Szczepanski, Kayla Tobin, & Eben Vanderwarker.

On Friday evening, Concordia Conservatory carolers visited and sang at 9 Bronxville restaurants with Chamber of Commerce Director Shannon Gangemi and President Leah Caro and Bronxville Police Officer Escort Matthew Stein.

The Conservatory Carolers included Executive Director Kathleen Suss, Director Melinda Magnani, Faculty Liz Ast, Program Coordinator Marilou Yacoub, Tania Weiss, Anne Angevine and Conservatory students Grace Brogan, Naomi Eliason, Ines Hanjis, Jolie Mincak, Caroline O'Hagen, and Tobin Zeigler.

The restaurant guests also joined in singing Christmas carols at every restaurant. The Village of Bronxville was full of song and good cheer.

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.
