Composition by Concordia Conservatory Student Sam Bright to be Featured at June School Concert

Sam Bright

By Kathleen Suss, Executive Director, Concordia Conservatory

May 25, 2022: The Bronxville Middle School Orchestra will perform a new work by Concordia Conservatory student Sam Bright entitled, “Moonlight in a Tunnel” on Wednesday, June 15 at 7:00 pm as part of their 2022 spring Concert.

Sam is 14 years old, studies composition and songwriting with Dr. Matt Van Brink at Concordia Conservatory, and is in the eighth grade at Bronxville Middle School.  Sam has been studying piano and composition at the Conservatory since age 6. His composition for solo piano “Sahar Aswad” won NYSSMA’s Call for Compositions in 2019 and was performed in Rochester at the NYSSMA 2019 winter conference. He plays contrabass in the Bronxville Middle School Orchestra and plays guitar with a band in Mamaroneck.

It has been a productive year for Sam Bright, who writes and performs in multiple musical genres. His song “Rock Train” will be performed by the Conservatory Rock Band; he collaborated with Conservatory songwriting student Nicholas Arakas on his pop song “Before”.

Wyeth Tvenge directs the orchestra and has been rehearsing “Moonlight in a Tunnel” with them throughout the year. He has given Sam the opportunity to lead and conduct rehearsals of his composition as well. Sam writes, “It's a strange feeling to be leading the orchestra – it’s definitely a new experience to conduct the orchestra instead of just playing in it.”

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.
