For the past two years, she has also been taking Greek voice lessons virtually and also takes three hours of Greek language lessons per week. Upcoming performances will be at Jimbos Greek Restaurant in Astoria, Queens on Wednesday and Thursday nights until mid-January.
When not singing and performing, Elaina tutors her peers in Spanish and history at Fordham and helps with University social events.
Elaina owns a summer house in Nafpaktos, Greece, where her maternal grandparents live. In 2020, she came in 4th Place in the Miss Greek Independence Pageant in Astoria.
Her song is available on all streaming platforms and YouTube.
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.
