Winners 2012: Community Award







Yonkers Philharmonic

If the “best things in life are free,” then Yonkers Philharmonic is certainly one of them!  Besides their four annual free concerts catering to a large senior citizen audience, this talented group of 75 musicians brings live performances into the community for young and old alike.  In the ethnically diverse Yonkers Public Schools, they capture young minds playing from jazz to classical.  For students, this may be the first time they have ever experienced a live orchestra or interacted with musicians. The contributions of the Yonkers Philharmonic offers opportunities for people of all ages to enjoy high quality music which is available, accessible and affordable, especially in this economic environment.
