Thank you Westchester Community Foundation!
Concerts made possible in part by ArtsWestchester with funds from the City of Yonkers and Mayor Mike Spano, Westchester County Government, Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino, The Thomas and Agnes Carvel Foundation, the East Yonkers Rotary Club, Westchester Community Foundation, Westchester Guardian, WVOX, and loyal patrons of the arts. This project was also made possible by the Yonkers Cultural Initiative grant program of the Westchester Arts Council, which is made possible by Westchester County Board of Legislators.
The orchestra continues to remember with great fondness and admiration of our past Maestro James Sadewhite. The orchestra fondly remembers previous conductors Pasquale Pistone and Jerome Sala.
Donations in memory of Maestro Sadewhite, Maestro Sala, or Maestro Pistone to the Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra can be made by sending a check to:
Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra or FAOS
P. O. Box 705
Please become a supporter of the orchestra and make your donation today.
Or better yet – consider being a sustaining benefactor and committing to donate over the next three years. Doing this makes financial planning much easier for us as we have a better understanding of what contributions will be coming in each year.
All donations are greatly appreciated – thank you for your continued support!

ArtsWestchester Community Service Award
Established in 1965 as the Council for the Arts in Westchester, we are New York State’s largest private, not-for-profit service organization, working to ensure the availability and accessibility of the arts for all of the county’s residents. In 1975, we were named by Westchester County government as the County’s designated arts council and we became one of several united arts funds in the country, providing grants and technical support to cultural organizations and artist residencies in the community.
ArtsWestchester gave the Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra an award for Community Service in 2012.
