RYE BROOK, N.Y. -- The Friends of Crawford Park hosted an afternoon of classical music and opera Sunday with the Furuya Sisters, as part of 'Music at the Mansion, an acoustic music series held at the historic Crawford Mansion on the grounds of Crawford Park in Rye Brook.

The mission of Music at the Mansion is to raise money for the park through a series of musical events that feature a combination of nationally-renowned and exceptional local talent.

The three Furuya Sisters – cellist Mimi, pianist Sakiko and violinist Harumi – were each a child prodigy, with Harumi beginning her studies at age 2, and Mimi and Sakiko making their respective debuts at age 8. Their original compositions have been performed many times at Juilliard.

Mezzo-soprano Rachel Weishoff, baritone Matthew Cossack, and pianist Christopher Cooley opened the show, performing selections from Mozart, Gounod and Rossini. Ms. Weishoff and Mr. Cossack are both current students at the SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music. Ms. Weishoff has performed in operas in NYC and Austria and has been featured on NBC’s Today Show.
