Celebrated Carnegie Hall pianist Katya Grineva performed a special Valentine’s concert to benefit the historic Tarrytown Music Hall on February 14, 2019. Ms. Grineva has the special distinction of performing more times at Carnegie Hall than any other solo female pianist and for this one night she was on The Music Hall stage!
Ms. Grineva played The Music Hall’s amazing new Steinway Model D Concert Grand Piano with her unique style and passion. The program of classics included Debussy “Clair de Lune”, Chopin “Fantasie – Impromptu”, and Beethoven “Moonlight Sonata”. Her dazzling performance was followed by a special Champagne and dessert reception on stage.
The evening also celebrated the theater’s anniversary of being saved from the wrecking ball. Local residents, Helen Ringeisen and Janet Byelick, were also honored for their crucial roles in rescuing the theater and establishing it as a nonprofit center for the performing arts. Today, The Music Hall is one of the busiest theaters in the region, offering the best in music, theater, dance and film and is an economic engine that pumps millions into the local economy. Saving the Music Hall has proven, indeed, to be important for the community!
Special thank you to Dan Bucci of Coldwell Banker and The Shames Jewish Community Center on the Hudson for supporting this performance, Au Ciel Flowers of Irvington, NY, for their exquisite arrangements, and MadeByRK Catering and Bakery of Dobbs Ferry, NY, for providing delicious desserts for our post-show reception.
