Winthrop Avenue choral students celebrated the season with a Fall/Halloween concert to the delight of parents and peers, held in the school auditorium on Oct. 30. 

Under the direction of teacher Maria Pisciotta, the well-rehearsed fourth-grade choral group, accompanied by musicians on recorders and xylophones, sang “America,” “Scarin’ Alive,” “Magic Brooms,” “Halloween Night,” “Ghost of John” and “Little Shop of Horrors,” all of which set the tone for the impending Halloween festivities. The concert commenced with the singing of the Winthrop Avenue song. In between each selection, the students recited poetry to reflect the fall season. Teacher Mallory Cogen was responsible for choreography that accompanied the various musical selections. 

Principal Sally Curto congratulated the students on their amazing performance. “You worked very hard and your practice shows,” she said. “I congratulate you on this wonderful performance.
