No matter your age, the Westchester Philharmonic offers many opportunities to engage with classical music. Below are some great events perfect for younger listeners.

Grace Church, White Plains

D. Paul Woodiel, violin, hardingfele, nyckelharpa

Dana Lyn, violin, viola, piano

Sarah Carter, cello

The magical Norwegian Hardingfele and its Swedish cousin, the Nyckelharpa provide magical, silvery textures that suit not just their traditional repertoire, but also composed repertoire of the renaissance and baroque. 


Sunday, December 17, 3:00 pm

Purchase Performing Arts Center

Eugene Moye, cello

Roberta Cooper, cello

Sarah Carter, cello 

Maureen Hynes, cello

Eliana Mendoza, cello 

Lanny Paykin, cello 

with Jeanne Ireland, soprano 

Villa-Lobos: Bachianas Brasilieras No. 5, plus works of the Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Saint-Saëns, Borodin, Satie, Sibelius, and much more.

Everyone loves the sound of the cello. But put six of them together and something other-worldly happens. The rich sound of the entire Philharmonic cello section gathers for great fun, a surprise or two, and that goosebump-raising, wordless melody of Villa-Lobos.
