Northside Instrumental Ensemble and Holiday Singers Perform Seniors
The Northside Instrumental Ensemble, directed by Jill Castillo, and the Fourth Grade Northside Holiday Singers, directed by Isabella McClancy, performed at the Levittown Senior Center in collaboration with Ron Castillo, a music teacher from the New York City Schools.
The Ensemble played lively holiday selections for their appreciative audience of parents and seniors from the community. The Holiday Singers were excited to sing carols and holiday songs. They took part in a final sing-along led by Mr. Castillo and the instrumentalists and seniors all joined in. Santa Claus made an appearance, bringing candy canes, dancing and singing along with the children.
Afterwards, the youngsters enjoyed sharing juice and cookies together with the seniors while talking about their experiences. This was a wonderful community activity in which the students further developed as caring citizens now and for the future.
