Glen Cove children from kindergarten through grade 12 performed seasonal concerts last week, with bands, orchestras and choirs delighting their audiences with a variety of theatrics and themes.
Gribbin Elementary School music teacher Joann Criblez led students through winter tunes like "Dance Little Snowflake" and "Season of Bells."
Criblez said students performing at a young age learn more than the music.
“It gets them used to speaking in front of people, gives them self-confidence, makes them proud and is a very unifying activity because everyone in the school participates,” she said. “It is something they all look forward to collectively.”
