Art created by individuals with developmental disabilities adorns the walls of the Tarrytown Music Hall now through January. The historic 843-seat Music Hall, built in 1885 by chocolate manufacturer William Wallace, is the oldest theater in Westchester County and one of 6% of theaters in the United States built before 1900. The Music Hall was erected during Tarrytown’s “Millionaire’s Colony” era. Notable Tarrytown residents such as the Goulds, Rockefellers, and Vanderbilts were patrons of the Music Hall, participating in its elaborate flowers shows, balls, and entertainment.

The theater invited Arc of Westchester's gallery265 to participate a special reception during the sold-out show of Cherish The Ladies, A Celtic Christmas on December 2. It was a wonderful community event that educated guests about the talents of individuals we support. It was an opportunity to celebrate the holiday season among new and old friends.
