This week the chorus hit the road and spread their own brand of holiday cheer across New York City!
On Tuesday, they sang at the elegant Staaten, at a dinner honoring the wonderful work done across the community by Meals On Wheels, an organization that brings food to the elderly and disabled. The children did a fantastic job and it was nice to be able to do our small part for such a worthy cause.
On Wednesday, we traveled in style to midtown Manhattan to sing for a private corporate party of an organization whose CEO heard the chorus perform last year at the Rainbow Room. It was a real party day for the chorus, and good times were had by all!
On Thursday, we mosied over to the Staten Island Mall to sing for a very large, enthusiastic group of shopping passersby turned PS22 Chorus fans! Thanks to my dad for the mall pics, and to our principal, Mrs. Donath, for the photos from the party in Manhattan. Also thanks to chorus member Robert for filming!
Finally, on Friday, the chorus rounded off its busiest week ever yesterday at Tottenville High School, recording selections for this year's annual Holiday Choral Concert series on cable TV! The kids were particularly on today; they were brilliant in fact, and the high school choruses watching them perform were astounded and inspired by the kids' commitment to the music. I will be receiving a schedule shortly from Time Warner as to air dates and times, and will post them on the blog when I do.
Now enjoy some more photos!
