The Music Conservatory of Westchester, a non-profit community school of the arts in White Plains, New York, has been awarded $41,000 in grants from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA). The grants will support need-based scholarships and tuition assistance for students ages 7-18, as well as funding for the school's Live on Central concert series, a partnership with area public schools to provide music education for special needs students, and the Conservatory's extensive music and musical theatre programming for all ages.

The grant-supported scholarships specifically identify students of color from low-income families to enroll. These students have the opportunity to thrive in the school's comprehensive program of music instruction, which includes individual instrumental or vocal instruction (classical, jazz, musical theatre), music theory, orchestra, chorus, and ensemble classes. The course of study centers on standard beginner, intermediate, and advanced repertoire for each instrument.

In addition to the need-based scholarships, NYSCA's grant funding helps to make possible the Conservatory's ever-expanding list of program offerings and extensive annual concert line-up, which includes a numerous performance opportunities for students, the school's expert faculty, and renowned guest artists.

The Music Conservatory of Westchester is located at 216 Central Avenue in White Plains, New York. Registration is always open and financial assistance is available for qualifying students. They can be reached at (914) 761-3900 or by visiting www.musicconservatory.org.
