Oct. 18, 2023" Concordia Conservatory presents its opening show of the 2023-24 UNIQUE Series season “You Got Styles” on Saturday, October 28 at three locations: The Reformed Church of Bronxville, Concordia Conservatory, 884 Newfield Avenue, Stamford and at the New Canaan Public Library.
The UNIQUE Series is an interactive music experience created for people with special needs/neurodiverse individuals. This musical show includes various song styles including folk, pop, jazz, Eastern and classical music showcasing diverse avenues for expressing art and ideas through music.
The show is hosted by Concordia Conservatory’s Rami Vamos and Matt Van Brink and performed by members of Orchestra Lumos. The show will engage audiences with elements of music therapy and family friendly humor while making music accessible to the individuals, families and caregivers in an intimate concert setting in the three venues.
Artistic Director Elizabeth Lim-Dutton worked with Concordia Conservatory’s Executive Director Kathleen Suss and Anthony Parce, Community Engagement and Education Manager for Orchestra Lumos, to bring this truly “unique” live music experience for our neurodiverse community.
Conservatory ambassadors for the UNIQUE Series are Kathleen Moriarty, Lilly Slaughter, and Ashton Turner. Concordia Conservatory provides music and arts therapy to both group classes and private sessions.
Currently, the Conservatory provides weekly creative arts therapy to 450 students ages 4 to 22 in the Stamford and Norwalk Public School Districts in Connecticut, as well as the Eastchester Public School District in New York.
UNIQUE concert tickets are $5 for children/seniors and $10 for adults. To purchase, visit www.concordiaconservatory.org or call 203-595-5059/914-395-4507. 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.
