Stewart Manor students perform showcase


Orchestra, band, chorus and sixth grade drama club students put on a holiday show for their family and peers on Dec. 15.

The show began with the orchestra string ensemble led by music teacher Eric DelOrfano, who played “Jolly Old St. Nick” and “Jingle Bells.” Sixth grade orchestra members also performed “Sleigh Ride in the Park.”

Next up on stage were the drama club students who entertained the audience with their performance of “The Holiday Hero,” written by co-advisor and special education teacher Christina DeCastro and directed by club co-advisor and technology assistant Nicole Termini.

Intermediate band students put attendees in the Christmas spirit with their renditions of “O Come, Little Children,” “Up on the Housetop” and “First Winter’s Sleigh Ride,” led by music teacher William Duerr.

Finally, the show concluded with the combined chorus of third and sixth grade students singing “Happy Winter” and “Holiday Road.”
