The Island Trees HS Chamber Orchestra, under the direction
of Leiann McGrory, and the Island Trees HS Chorus, under the direction of Susan
Oliveto, performed at the Levittown Chamber of Commerce Annual Holiday Tree
held at the Town of Hempstead Veterans Memorial Park on
Monday, Dec. 3.
Both groups performed holiday hits such as “Have Yourself a Merry Little
Christmas”, “Silver Bells”, “Frosty The Snowman”, “Let It Snow”, “Sleigh Ride”,
and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”, as well as traditional Christmas
Carols such as “Deck the Halls”, “O Little Town Of Bethlehem”, “Angels We Have
Heard On High”, and “We Three Kings of Orient Are”.
This traditional, outdoor event included choral and
instrumental performances from neighboring schools, dance company performances,
a visit from Santa Claus, and the lighting of the holiday tree.
Bringing the community together to
start the holiday season, it was a wonderful evening enjoyed by all.
