Constantine Maroulis (Rock of Ages) will emcee and perform at the Music Conservatory of Westchester’s 16th Annual Golf and Tennis Classic June 26, along with Tony winner Adriane Lenox (Doubt) and Tony nominees Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll & Hyde) and Mary Bridget Davies (A Night with Janis Joplin).

The not-for-profit White Plains, New York, music school will honor Broadway performer Darlene Love (Hairspray), A Bronx Tale author Chazz Palminteri, and his wife Gianna Palminteri in an awards dinner at Brae Burn Country Club in Purchase, New York.

Rock ‘n‘ Roll Hall of Famer Love will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. The school has also instituted a Darlene Love Vocal Scholarship.

Alice Cabral, 11, who has studied at the conservatory since 2013, will be the first recipient of the scholarship. “It’s such an honor,” said Love. “I’m wishing her lots of success in the coming years.”

Oscar-nominated actor and A Bronx Tale creator Palminteri and his actor/producer wife will receive the Arts Achievement and Community Leadership Award for their extensive film and theatre credits, arts advocacy, and charitable work, including The Child Reach Foundation, an organization they founded that battles Thalassemia and other fatal childhood blood disorders.

A third award will go to conservatory’s board vice president, Laurence Keiser, for “distinguished leadership.”

Proceeds from the event will benefit the school’s Music Therapy Institute, which provides music programs for those with special needs, and its Healing Our Heroes program, which provides music therapy for returning military veterans, and its scholarship program for low-income students.
