Northport K-8 School Choral and Band Departments under the direction of Brian Hoce and Thomas Conner offered a variety of musical performances to showcase the hard work and the talents of music students from grades three through eight. The students practiced and honed their musical prowess to offer programs at the school and in the community. The students kicked off their productions at Bass Pro Shop with a beautiful late afternoon concert in the front of the store. Students performed beautifully at the Port St. Lucie Festival of Lights at the Civic Center and offered a dinner theater with the theme, “Jingle Bell Jukebox.” The school community and parents were thrilled with the performance and the holiday and Christmas featured music selections. Students performed for the Nettles Island community with Northport Principal, Glenn Rustay participating by offering a splendid reading of “T’was the Night Before Christmas!” The final program was held at Port St. Lucie High School in their wonderful auditorium to showcase student talents in “Winter Memories!” The overarching theme of holiday selections offered an indepth view of what hard work, initiative and talent can achieve. Great job Northport Music Department and parents who urged their children to practice, practice, practice! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Northport K-8 School!
