Winthrop celebrated the season with a spooky concert, under the direction of teacher Erica Davis. The well-rehearsed fourth-grade choral group, accompanied by dancers and student-musicians on the recorder, sang “Better Watch Out,” “The Monster Song,” “Midnight” and “Ghostbusters.” A special performance of Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Danse Macabre” set the tone for the impending weekend Halloween festivities.
After the concert, students, staff and parents joined in a singalong that included “The Addams Family,” “Oh My Monster, Frankenstein,” “Skin ’n’ Bones” and “Halloween Rock.”
Principal Sally Curto congratulated the students on their performance. “You worked very hard and it shows,” she said. “This concert had something for everyone.”
