Concordia Conservatory Celebrates Black History Month with a Virtual Installment of its Musical Adventures at the Library Series

Bronxville, NY —  Concordia Conservatory’s Musical Adventures at the Library series will reach an expanded virtual audience with a special program celebrating Black History Month.

 

The Musical Adventures at the Library series, made possible by a grant from The Community Fund of Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe, normally brings Conservatory faculty into the Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe Public Libraries and district classrooms to enrich children’s learning experience with music and literature. Amid current restrictions, the program is now recorded, with a link provided to libraries and school districts for distribution in conjunction with a hybrid learning curriculum.

“Last year’s COVID shutdown gave us an opportunity to rethink delivery of this beloved program.” said Kathleen Suss, Executive Director of Concordia Conservatory. “As a result, we’re reaching far more children than ever with engaging musical storytelling.”

Debuting Monday, February 22, the special Black History Month program features a performance of Concordia College student Claudia Hope reading Double Bass Blues by Andrea J. Loney, and Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Peña, accompanied by Conservatory faculty Bob Gingery on the double bass. The program can be accessed here:  https://youtu.be/v8vUMaaRPX0
