Veterans Hold Holiday Concert in White Plains

Earlier this month, veterans from the Music Conservatory of Westchester’s Healing Our Heroes program performed a special holiday “music sharing.” Music performed included “Silent Night” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” The program, which is an extension of the White Plains’ community music school’s Music Therapy Institute, was established in September 2013, and provides music therapy and music instruction to restore, support and improve the physical, emotional, psychological, and neurologic functioning of our veterans, while also improving the quality of life for them and their families.

Scarsdale resident Joel Breitkopf, board president and founding sponsor, provided initial support for this program through The Breitkopf Family Veterans Scholarship Fund. For more information on this program, visit http://www.musicconservatory.org/music-thera…/music-therapy… or call (914) 761-3900.
