Downtown Music begins its 29th season in just a few months. We ask your help in creating an anniversary celebration which reflects our joy in reaching this milestone.
When Downtown Music began in 1988, the center of White Plains looked far different than today. We were one of the few cultural opportunities in a city that had seen better days. Now our music, in a renewed and exciting downtown area, reaches a diverse audience of more than 4,000 people each year. Recent highlights include internationally acclaimed performers and notable premiers of opera and other works– world class music that is convenient affordable and welcoming.
Our musical partnerships have grown to include members of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the Westchester Philharmonic and the Stecher and Horowitz Foundation, sponsors of the New York International Piano Competition. Our Downtown Sinfonietta accompanies internationally recognized soloists, and REBEL, the ensemble for Baroque music, visits several times each year.
As we approach our 29th season, our early belief in the cultural potential of the downtown area has proven well founded. And, with your help, we look forward to increasing and realizing that potential for years to come.
No anniversary season would be complete without a celebration– a season of concerts which is truly special. Your gift today will directly determine what sort of 29th season we will have. If Downtown Music has been important to you for any of the last 29 years, then we ask you to consider a special and generous commitment to our future.

“You do not need to be a classical music buff to enjoy the simple delight of arriving at this small, landmark church with wonderful acoustics, taking your seat, and allowing the music to wash over you. A true escape from the rigors and unwanted noise of our lives.”
