Our 30th Anniversary Season

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
