Asbury-Crestwood United Methodist Church has a long history of outstanding music programs and a record of community service. Asbury Church and its music directors have presented choral and organ concerts to the public over many years and have enjoyed longstanding partnerships with Sarah Lawrence College, Concordia College, and the Yonkers Council of Churches. The Asbury Summer Theatre group operated for 32 years, presenting over 30 sold-out shows to thousands of delighted audience members.
In 2014, we launched Music at Asbury, a series of three concerts held on Sunday afternoons in the church sanctuary featuring some of New York City and the Hudson Valley’s finest musical artists. As a program under the auspices of the church, Music at Asbury was designed to serve as a social service to the community, offering free admission to the general public for all of its concerts. Special efforts are also made to connect with local agencies and facilities that serve the elderly, young people, and lower income families and adults.
Community support of our first two seasons has been overwhelming in terms of attendance as well as the range and number of financial contributions. This level of broad-based support shows us that the greater Yonkers-Tuckahoe area is eager for high-quality, diverse musical programs that are accessible to all residents.
