Our 29th Anniversary Season
September 2016 - May 2017

 

You do not need to be a classical music buff to enjoy the simple delight of arriving at this small, landmark church with wonderful acoustics, taking your seat, and allowing the music to wash over you. A true escape from the rigors and unwanted noise of our lives.”

– Joshua Worby,
Executive Director,
Westchester Philharmonic

 

 

 

 

Arts in Education Program

Downtown Music presents concerts that are appropriate for school groups. These school-time concerts feature nationally-recognized artists who are known for their innovative, high-quality work, experience working with children, and musical appeal to young audiences. The informative and inspiring performances are for students from pre-K through High School and are designed to help motivate K-12 children to learn, to appreciate and participate in the arts, and to recognize the diversity of the world around them. It is a fun, creative way to allow self-expression. The shows have been underwritten by sponsors and are available to school groups at no charge.

Performers present age-appropriate musical concerts and give a half-hour pre- or post-performance discussion about the music that they performed. All programs have curriculum connections related to the New York State Learning Standards. Teachers will receive study guides with sample classroom extension activities.

In conjunction with the Noontime Concert Series, the half-hour concerts are held on Wednesdays at 12:10pm at Grace Church, which is located at the intersection of Mamaroneck Avenue and Main Street in downtown White Plains.
