Assemblywoman Galef Features Copland House on “Dear Sandy”

October 23, 2013

The latest installment of Assemblywoman Sandy Galef’s cable television show, “Dear Sandy,” features Michael Boriskin, Artistic and Executive Director of Copland House and Lembit Beecher, resident performing artist, as the organization celebrates its fifteenth anniversary. Copland House is the former residence of the great American composer Aaron Copland and lies within the Town of Cortlandt, in Galef’s Assembly District.

Boriskin describes the many ways they promote Copland’s legacy while Lembit Beecher enthusiastically talks about what the experience of living at Copland House means to him as he works on the opera he is completing. They both discuss what a valuable resource the Copland house has become in the world of classical music with its programs of resident artists, school visitors, and performances at Merestead.

“I am so pleased that Michael and Lembit were able to join me on my television show for a discussion of what Copland House has become in the last fifteen years,” said Assemblywoman Galef. “It is wonderful to hear about how significantly it has contributed to the music scene both in Westchester and far beyond. I hope viewers will join me to learn more about this wonderful cultural arts institution in our own backyard.”
