Board Member and Committee Volunteer Recruitment Profile

Friends of Music Concerts, Inc., is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, founded in 1954, which has brought the finest chamber music to Westchester audiences.  In an annual six-concert series, it showcases both world-renowned ensembles and distinguished younger artists who illustrate the diversity and fine quality of chamber music today.  With its residency program in public schools and free student admission to its concert series, it gives young people in the community enhanced exposure to and appreciation of classical music, with a view toward building audiences for the future.

As we build interest in classical music among a new generation by expanding into more schools and growing and diversifying our concert audiences, we are seeking additional board members and committee volunteers to help us expand our community of support and our public profile.

This is an exciting, hands-on opportunity for people who wish to bring their love of music to a wider audience in Westchester.  Your expertise, energy and ambassadorship can help keep chamber music thriving.
