ARMONK, N.Y. - The H.C. Crittenden Middle School woodwind chamber ensemble performed an impromptu concert at the Houlihan Lawrence office on Main St. in Armonk, during the Frosty Day celebration on Saturday afternoon.
"There are 15 kids in the ensemble today," said Cheryl Beck, the music teacher who played piano to lead the holiday songs the group played. "We push them forward and they play outside of school at events like this, they're the leaders in the band."
Judy Chapin, the manager at Houlihan Lawrence, said, "I'm thrilled they asked us. This is our first year hosting a concert like this and I'm amazed at how many people are here. It's a very festive beginning to the holidays for us."
Houlihan Lawrence was also one of the businesses that participated in the Scavenger Hunt event earlier in the day.
Betty Baumel, whose grandson Billy Markowitz is an 8th grader who plays oboe in the ensemble, said, "I think he's doing wonderful. The kids are coordinated and disciplined and the teacher has done a great job with them."
