EASTCHESTER, N.Y. -- Tuckahoe school officials are calling the William E. Cottle School’s annual winter concert a “huge success.”

Cottle principal George Albano said the concert featured an orchestra directed by Lubima Shentov; a chorus directed by Keiha Kim; and a band directed by Richard Grasso.

Albano extended a special thanks to Russian-born classical pianist Katya Grineva, who performed at the concert, and Annbritt DuChateau, who accompanied the teachers on piano.

According to Albano, Grineva will perform at Carnegie Hall at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 26, for the Tuckahoe schools community.

Two students – with a paid adult – can attend for free, compliments of the Generoso Pope Foundation, Albano said.

The “Classical Holiday Concert” will feature songs from Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker,” and other holiday favorites, he said.

Albano said a flier on the concert was sent home with students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
