BRIARCLIFFF MANOR, N.Y. -- Briarcliff Middle and High School band students were treated to a performance featuring everything from tango to opera music and learned about new instruments during a recent visit from West Point’s Quintet Seven.

The West Point Band’s Quintette 7 selected its name as a witty homage to composer Raymond Scott, incorporating elements of two of his performing ensembles’ names (The Raymond Scott Quintette and The Secret 7).

The ensemble, a mixed septet of four rhythm players and three horns, is comprised of members of the West Point Concert Band and the band’s Field Music Group, The Hellcats.

Band teacher Christopher Melito invited the group.
