The UNIQUE is an interactive, 30-minute concert experience created specifically for learners with special needs and their families. Featuring music from Suite Italienne by Igor Stravinsky, the concert is performed by violinist Elizabeth Lim-Dutton of Orchestra Lumos and Conservatory faculty pianist Marijia Ilic, and is written and hosted by Rami Vamos with dancer Ella Grace Worraker. Rami will engage audiences with elements of music therapy and family friendly humor, while making classical music accessible to the students. The concert schedule is as follows:
At The Reformed Church of Bronxville

Concordia Conservatory’s mission is to inspire, instruct, and enrich lives through music offering 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.
