 Monday, December 21, 2015


From our Director, Jean Newton:

"All of us at the Music Conservatory of Westchester were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Maestro Kurt Masur. We knew him not only as a transformational musical figure, but as a Conservatory parent during the years his son Ken-David Masur studied with us. Maestro Masur leaves a monumental legacy. Our hearts go out to the his family.  He will be greatly missed."
