NEW ROCHELLE, NY — A new series, “Music In Our Lives,” will be launched with a dazzling performance by internationally-renowned and Grammy-nominated flutist Carol Wincenc and New York Philharmonic harpist Nancy Allen on Sunday, September 23, from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm, in the Ossie Davis Theater of the New Rochelle Public Library.
