In recognition of the National Association for Music Education’s 33rd observance of Music in Our Schools Month, Winthrop Avenue fourth-graders  entertained audiences with two daytime choral concert performances on March 16 under the baton of music teacher Maria Pisciotta and with choreography by Mallory Cogen. 

Principal Sally Curto thanked the community for their support of the district’s music program. “This concert is an opportunity to show the community how important music is to us at Winthrop Avenue,” she said. 

Student-musicians Brendan Chiu, Daniel Lin and Isabel Mazur warmed up the audiences with solo performances on piano. In addition to the presentation of interesting facts about Broadway’s most memorable musicals, students sang the Lion King’s “I Just Can’t Wait to be King,” Anastasia’s “At the Beginning With You,” Aladdin’s “A Whole New World,” Hairspray’s “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from Mary Poppins. The concert concluded with the singing of the “Winthrop Winning Stars Song.”
