First Impressions!




First impressions are really important, and we have no doubt that this little sneak peak at only the 3rd official rehearsal of the PS22 Chorus of 2009 will leave you excited for things to come! Here they prove that point with the Converse promotional tune, "My Drive Thru" by Pharrell, Santogold, Julian Casablancas, and N.E.R.D.. And while we may still be a bit rough around the edges, we've only been practicing for less than 2 weeks. And all the hard work is resembling a party more than anything else with these guys, as you will be unable to miss when you watch the video!




And here are a few more videos from rehearsal today, featuring only a few of the promising PS22 Chorus soloists. Unfortunately this was Sandria's last day at PS22, but we're STILL hoping maybe she'll be back.... Girl's been known to come and go.... (Seriously, we will miss you Sandria, and big sister Ashleigh too. We wish you both the best in your new schools, which are lucky to have you.

And Tirzah singing "Family Portrait" by Pink



Looks like good things are to be expected this year from the PS22 Chorus of 2009! Stick around.....

Very nice. It's nice to see that there are teachers out there that really LOVE the job they do - and of course it shows.

God Bless

Mr. B said...

ASHLEY: That's awesome that you're taking the initiative to try to make sure you get what you deserve! I'm so proud of you for trying...... Let me know how it's going with that, or if you need my help. :)

SAD AMBUH: Tirzah definitely did an AMAZING job on Family Portrait! She sings so soulfully, and that song sounds like it was made for her. I think I may like her version better than Pink's.....

MISS YOU BOTH!! :)

everyone has changed soo much throughout the year, it's amazing. the kids in the ps22 chorus of 08/09 are my age. yet it's like... i don't know. they're not afraid to be themselves, they're not afraid to express their interests in music & singing. i mean, honestly, at my elementary school, if you had even REMOTELY expressed an interest in singing, it would be death by the gossip squad. no joke... and just wondering, did allie, tirzah, and mariah go to the same middle schools?
