The Chamiade Club was founded in 1895 in Yonkers, NY.
In April 2020 the Chaminade Club will celebrate its’ 125th birthday. Madame Cécile Chaminade, a French Composer who specialized in piano and voice, inspired a group of music lovers who lived in Park Hill to form a club for the sole purpose of participating in piano and voice recitals to entertain themselves and others. It is said that Madame Chaminade suggested to theatrical residents of Park Hill that their lovely homes would be perfect settings for musical entertainment.
The Chaminade Club now hosts afternoon chamber music concerts at The Grinton I. Will Library on Central Park Avenue in Yonkers and other nearby locations every season. Admission is usually free for members. The Club sometimes requests a voluntary $10.00 scholarship fund donation from concert attendees.
Every spring, the club gives scholarships to gifted young artist(s) to help them further their music education.
The Chaminade Club is affiliated with the New York State Federation of Music Clubs and the Westchester County Federation of Women’s Clubs. For more information contact Ms. Joyce Henery at (914) 964-8163 or Ms. Marcia . Klein at (914) 631-6674.
