High school band marches to its own tune

Rockin’: Members of the James Madison HS band perform for patients at Beth Israel Medical Center.

‘Madison’ band is a hit

A toot-toot-tootin’ New Year’s shout-out to James Madison High School Marching Band for bringing musical cheer last month to patients at Beth Israel Medical Center’s Kings Highway Division, with a crowd-pleasing holiday concert in the lobby.

James Trybendis, a music teacher at the Marine Park school, directed his talented musicians through rousing renditions of “Jingle Bells,” “Feliz Navidad,” “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” and other seasonal favorites.

Welcome committee members, including Rabbi Sheldon Goldsmith, administrative vice president Rhona Hetsrony, patient care services veep Marguerite Corda, RN, and Rabbi Jacob Hoenig who arranged the annual event, added their sweet voices to the merry making.

Beth Israel Medical Center [3201 Kings Hwy. at New York Avenue in Marine Park, (718) 252–3000].
