Conn-Selmer adds Riverdale Country School to Growing School Program

Riverdale Students to Receive New Instruments through Partnership

Elkhart, IN — Conn-Selmer’s Division of Education has added Riverdale Country School, located in New York City, NY, to its growing list of institutions who are part of the Conn-Selmer School Program. The program gives the Riverdale Country School’s Department of Music access to arts education resources including grants, professional development, and an instrument inventory assessment system.

More specifically, Conn-Selmer partnered with Jason Curry, Riverdale’s Chair of the Department of Music, to facilitate this large scale project. “Riverdale’s Department of Music believes in the philosophy of the Conn-Selmer company,” said Mr. Curry. “The company helps to instill a sense of professionalism and inspiration to young student musicians and has enabled the next generation to perform on the highest quality equipment.” As a result, Riverdale will obtain top-tier instruments for use in the Lower and Middle School Bands, as well as in the Upper School Wind Symphony, Jazz Ensemble, Orchestra and Pop and Rock Band.

Conn-Selmer Managing Director of Educational Services Michael Kamphuis said, “We were eager to add Riverdale Country School to our list of Conn-Selmer Schools and we welcome them to the Conn-Selmer family."
