With great excitement we announce the appointment of a new permanent conductor and music director of the Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra–Ms. Tong Chen! (www.tongchenconductor.com)
The directors of the Fine Arts Orchestral Society of Yonkers made their choice following many months of hard work by the YPO Conductor Search Committee and input from the orchestra members.
We look forward to many exciting concert seasons under the baton of Ms. Chen.
Concerts made possible in part by ArtsWestchester with funds from the Westchester County Government, Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino, The Thomas and Agnes Carvel Foundation, the East Yonkers Rotary Club, The Hudson Valley Foundation, the Westchester Community Foundation, Westchester Guardian, WVOX, and loyal patrons of the arts. This project was also made possible by the Yonkers Cultural Initiative grant program of the Westchester Arts Council, which is made possible by Westchester County Board of Legislators.
The orchestra continues to remember with great fondness and admiration of our past Maestro James Sadewhite.
Donations in his memory to the Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra can be made by sending a check to:
