Presenting.... THE CHORUS OF 2007-8!!!!



The PS22 Chorus members have been hard at work preparing for their debut performances coming up this week! To give you a little taste of what's to come from this phenomenal new bunch of fifth graders, here is a new video recorded yesterday, October 12th, submitted for your approval! It's hard to believe the new group is together less than a month and sounding this polished! A good sign for things to come.....


So here it is, presenting the debut video from The All-New PS22 Chorus singing "Time" by Tom Waits (also recorded by friend of the chorus, Tori Amos)! The chorus sounds AMAZING, as do our soloists, Angela and Isaac, with hardly any practice at all!! Click on the triangle in the middle to play, kids!



And for fun, here's the original version, sung live by Tom Waits. Wouldn't you say he has an interesting "timbre" kids? Eh, eh?? :)



And another live version of the song, sung here so beautifully by the extraordinary Tori Amos.....
