Tong Chen  was a prize winner in 2012 of the prestigious International Malko Conducting Competition held in Copenhagen, Denmark.  Ms. Chen was recently chosen by Kurt Masur as the recipient of the 2012 Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Scholarship.



 This concert was made possible in part by ArtsWestchester with funds from the Westchester County Government, The Thomas and Agnes Carvel Foundation and loyal patrons of the arts.

It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of Maestro James Sadewhite.
