Asbury-Crestwood United Methodist Church has a long history of outstanding music programs and a record of community service. Asbury Church and its music directors have presented choral and organ concerts to the public over many years and the Asbury Summer Theatre group operated for 32 years, presenting over 30 sold-out shows to thousands of delighted audience members.
In the fall of 2014, we introduced a new three-concert series, Music at Asbury. As a program under the auspices of Asbury-Crestwood United Methodist Church, Music at Asbury has been designed to serve as a social service to the community, offering free admission to the general public for all of its concerts and reaching out to local agencies and facilities that serve the elderly, young people, Veterans, and lower income families and adults.
Music at Asbury is proud to feature a wide variety of engaging, appealing, and top quality performances to entertain and educate our audiences. The series is made possible by contributions from audience members and the Asbury church community, by the local business and civic community through program advertising, and through the support of Arts Westchester’s Arts Alive grant program.
