Program Description

Event Details

The first concert of the 2023-2024 season will highlight the musical contributions of Yonkers and area luminaries across the last century. This is our most ambitious program yet, a way to recognize the deep musical legacy of Yonkers while also recognizing the many exceptional working artists in our community. The program includes well-loved songs written or made famous by WC Handy, Ella Fitzgerald, Gene Krupa and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler.
