Yonkers is upgrading their city by promoting local musicians and performing artists. Today's media is filled with pop. It is great to find this city doing something real for culture, music and the arts, in a grand, new venue."

What is Culture?

A highly developed state of perfection; having a flawless or impeccable quality; "they performed with great polish"; "I admired the exquisite refinement of his prose"; "almost an inspiration which gives to all work that finish which is almost art"--Joseph Conrad

Also, The state of being cultivated, result of cultivation, physical improvement, enlightenment and discipline acquired by mental and moral training, civilization, refinement in manners and taste.
