GUARDIAN Angel!!



An awesome article appeared in the U.K. paper The Guardian, the British version of the N.Y. Times (which ran a feature about the chorus just last month)!! It was awesome to get this kind of international exposure, and a total surprise! Big thanks to Chris Zane of Passion Pit who forwarded me the article. Click here to read it on The Guardian's website.

I sat at work yesterday and read the article in The Guardian about the choir.
It spurred me on to go to Youtube and have a look.
I am speechless. It's simply fantastic.
Who needs expensive Hollywood productions when you have real life?
To all involved..
Thank You.

I also read The Guardian review last Friday - I tore out the article and put it by my computer, and today I searched for PS22 online. I love the way the children are so into the music and I've specially enjoyed hearing their performance of 'One Day' by Bjork. ALL school kids should have the chance to sing in a choir like this. It made my day! Thank you Mr.B for all your dedication!

Mr. B said...

Mr. B said...

you deserved it, and without a doubt, you're one of the nicest students i've ever had. and that's the truth.

april, i don't know if you realize exactly what this whole album thing means. (i'm not quite sure i can really process all of it either.) but this is a HUGE HUGE deal. we're talking an international release, so this is no joke.

it's amazing to think what you kids have accomplished this year. beyond belief....
