In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, the Music Conservatory of Westchester will present a virtual faculty concert featuring music by Black composers on Wednesday, July 15 at 12pm on Facebook and YouTube.
As a nonprofit music school based in White Plains, NY, the Conservatory’s mission – to provide the extraordinary benefits of music to all in our community – is amplified in this concert. In sharing the music of Black composers such as Florence Price, Duke Ellington, and Miles Davis, as well as spirituals performed by esteemed Music Conservatory of Westchester faculty members, the school is honoring the cultural contributions of African Americans in a dedicated spotlight.
Known for broad diversity in its community of students, faculty, and staff, the Conservatory now aims to make change by presenting introductions to music that reflects the various cultures making up the school’s population. Plans are in progress to expand the school’s teaching repertoire as well.
Tune in on Wednesday, July 15 at 12pm for the Music Conservatory of Westchester’s virtual faculty concert featuring music by Black composers. Links to watch on Facebook and YouTube will be available at https://musicconservatory.org/community/ prior to the concert.
