The Music Conservatory of Westchester (MCW) will celebrate the life of their recently deceased Executive Director, Carol Shiffman, with a special tribute concert, “Share the Light: Celebrating the Life of Carol Shiffman”, November 18 at 7 p.m. The evening will include performances by the late Rye resident’s Conservatory “family” and friends.

shiffmanMs. Shiffman, 65, passed away October 24 after a long, courageous battle with breast cancer. “While we mourn Carol each day, we wanted to celebrate all that she meant to us at the Conservatory with a grand concert,” said MCW Director of Communications Jon Chattman. “To paraphrase a speech she once gave, she may have been small in stature, but took mighty big steps.”

In over two years at the helm of the Conservatory, Ms. Shiffman provided extraordinary leadership, passion, and organizational development. She increased student opportunities, chartered innovative partnerships, and received sizeable grants for both educational programming and building preservation.

She was previously Dean of the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Dance, and was recognized nationally for her work in arts administration, music, dance, arts education, and was a former dance instructor, performer, and choreographer. She could have easily been in numerous notable theatrical play performances.

“Carol was a true champion of the arts who cared so very deeply for this organization,” said MCW Board President Rodd Berro. “Her impact on the Conservatory, its students, faculty, board, and staff will be felt for years to come.”

In partnership with Shiffman’s husband, Larry Harbison, the Conservatory has created The Carol Shiffman Scholarship Fund in honor of its namesake and her lifelong passion for the arts.

“Carol was an extraordinary woman – smart, generous, passionate about the arts, and dedicated to bringing the joy of creativity to each person whose life she touched,” said Jean Newton, Dean of Students and Faculty.
