ABOUT THE WESTCHESTER CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY (WCMS)
WCMS LAUNCHES NEW EDUCATIONAL INITIATIVE AT MARCH 19 CONCERT
THE AMERIGO TRIO
featuring Glenn Dicterow, former concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic,
will be joined by an ensemble from the Music Conservatory of Westchester
With great pleasure the Westchester Chamber Music Society (WCMS) announces a new initiative to partner with chamber music programs at schools and colleges across Westchester County. Selected student chamber music groups will perform a brief piece at the beginning of many of our concerts. The performers will be top musicians from local high schools, the Music Conservatory of Westchester, Hoff-Barthelson Music School, and the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College. We are delighted to welcome into our wonderful venue these young chamber musicians and their families, to be inspired by and even coached by our series’ professional concert artists.
