Words & Music Concert Series
The Words & Music concert series presented by TD Bank brings well known singer/songwriters and recording artists to perform in the Library’s 200 seat Budarz Theater.
Co-founded in 2011 by Alan and Ellen Marzelli, the series to date has consisted of 45 shows, 30 of which have been presented free to the community. In the past two years, 8 ticketed shows have generated $16,000 to support the Library’s own free programs.
Coming Up Next
Kenny White returns to the Budarz Theater with his trio plus special guest Angela Reed for a concert to benefit the Ossining Public Library on the occasion of its 125th anniversary.
About the Foundation
The Foundation was founded in 2007 to assist the Library and its Board in raising funds for important activities and projects outside the scope of the Library budget. These may include new programs, equipment, special activities, pilot projects and the establishment of an endowment fund. Among the activities or projects we have sponsored or are currently sponsoring are the Words and Music Performance Series, the Italian Film Series, Building a Reading Community (a program to encourage parents and children reading together), the After School Homework Help Program, performances by the Mustizo Dance Company, folk music, drapes and equipment for the Budarz Theater, and funding for Children’s Room mural.
We are grateful to several of you who have already made generous pledges to help insure this state-of-the-art cultural center will have the resources to deliver on its mandate. We ask the community-at-large for their support and contribution to help the Library provide more breadth and depth in its vital services.
If you are interested in knowing more about these projects, or in contributing to them or to the Foundation in general, please contact us at the address above or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
