Bellmore students at the Charles A. Reinhard, Winthrop Avenue and Shore Road schools demonstrated their leadership skills throughout the holiday season through music.

First-graders at C.A. Reinhard performed on the stage for the first time for parents, faculty and peers during the annual Holiday Show. In preparation for the concert, the students honed various stage elements, learned about articulation and stage presence and displayed focus and determination while learning the words to popular holiday songs. 

Winthrop Avenue third-graders also entertained faculty, family and peers during a holiday choral performance. Under the direction of music teacher Maria Martucci, the students  celebrated Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s with an array of festive songs, which added to the holiday spirit. Students Leah Irizarry and Gianna Massari showcased their talents on piano prior to the concert, with separate performances of “Jingle Bells” by orchestra students and the “Dreidel Song” by recorder players. The concert commenced with everyone singing the “Winthrop Winning Stars” song. 

Shore Road student-musicians also shared their musical talents with members of the community. Under the direction of orchestra teacher Kelly Brandstadter, students performed holiday tunes for patients and staff at the Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow. Their gift of music spread holiday cheer to otherwise busy workers and to those who are hospitalized.
