YORKTOWN, N.Y. – As the only performer in the world to perform the title roles in the musicals “Jekyll and Hyde,” “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Les Miserables,” Yorktown’s Craig Schulman is the perfect recipient of ArtsWestchester’s annual award for best artist, ArtsWestchester committee members said.

Schulman is set to be honored Thursday at White Plains’ Crowne Plaza Hotel for the 36th annual ArtsWestchester Arts Awards . The event is set to open with a reception at noon, followed by the luncheon and awards presentation at 12:30 p.m. and will feature Schulman performing a selection from “The Phantom of the Opera.” The Arts Awards “recognize individuals and organizations whose vision, commitment and leadership enrich Westchester,” according to ArtsWestchester representatives.

“The Arts Awards are like Westchester’s own Academy Awards,” said CEO Janet Langsam. “(Schulman) is a very talented Broadway virtuoso. But equally as important is that Schulman provides scholarships for local high school kids, and he has really demonstrated his caring for our community.”

Schulman’s charity “Jenna’s Dream” is a scholarship fund that helps local high school seniors who are pursuing college degrees in the performing arts.

The Arts Awards are also set to honor Carnegie Hall Trustee Judith Evnin, New Rochelle High School alumni and photographer Tony Vaccaro, Westchester Chamber Music Society founder Caroline Bauman, Friends of the North Castle Library and several others.
