In recognition of national Music in Our Schools Month, Winthrop Avenue’s third-grade chorus, under the direction of music teacher Erica Davis, entertained family, faculty and peers during two concert performances on March 15. In addition, students who would participate in the annual Eugene Reichenthal Recorder Festival accompanied the singers and demonstrated their recorder skills for audiences.

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. 

The students sang “There is a Melody,” the Irish jig “Wee Falorie Man” and “Feel the Beat.” Recorder students accompanied the singers during “Oh How Lovely the Evening.” The concert then commenced with a sing-a-long to “Do-Re-Me,” “Agalina” and “I Love Music.” Throughout the concert, several students gave the definitions to musical terms as they relate to the musical pieces being performed.
