Winthrop Avenue third-graders entertained administrators, faculty, parents and peers in the last orchestra and choral music concert of the school year, held in the school’s auditorium on June 7. For the past several months, the students have been learning posture, note-reading and how to read music, as well as the teamwork and synergy it takes to create beautiful music.

Under the baton of music teacher Erica Glikos, the orchestra performed “Royal Promenade,” “Whistle While You Work” and “A Maiden’s Rescue” to the delight of the audience. 

Choral students, under the direction of music teacher Maria Pisciotta and choreography by Mallory Cogen, performed a playlist of more modern pieces including “Showtime,” “True Colors,” “Sally Sells Seashells” and “Moana’s” “How Far I’ll Go.” The concert commenced with a recorder performance of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow. ”

Principal Sally Curto congratulated the students on their stellar performance and said it was obvious that dedication and teamwork paid off in the end. “It is no wonder that Bellmore has been recognized for the second consecutive year by the NAMM Foundation as a best community for music education,” she said.
