On The Radio!!



(Click on the pink play button above to listen to the interview)


Yesterday, the PS22 Chorus celebrated yet another milestone! At about 1:15 PM, I was interviewed by Chris Evans on his weekday radio show on The BBC (which, according to reliable sources,attracts a listening audience of over 5,000,000 people daily) about the incredible accomplishments of the PS22 Chorus! Chorus members Mariah and Joseph even got to give a shout out to the U.K. too!

But most significantly, it was the first time ever that the PS22 Chorus were heard on a major radio station. They played the chorus singing it's version of "Everybody's Changing" by Keane, and the kids sounded PERFECT!! The response so far that we've received has been simply overwhelming! Stay tuned for a link or an mp3 of the radio interview -- coming soon!
CONGRATULATIONS CHORUS!!!

This chorus is brilliant, great job. Im really interested in singing, so does anyone know a place thats atleast as close as good as you guys? Im really jealous, and want to be a good singer, and it stinks that im too old for this. (im 14)

Mr. B said...

thanks so much for your kindness! i wish you luck on your quest for an outlet for your singing!! there should be a ps22 chorus EVERYWHERE!! :)

does it only go up to 5th grade?

i have so many questions ha! Mr B do u have an email?

Mr. B said...

yes, our school only goes up to fifth grade. i do have an e-mail address which you can get to on the blog. however, right now i'm on vacation, and am way behind on my e-mails. i do my best to get back to everybody, but sometimes mail slips through the cracks. the most reliable way of getting a response from me is by leaving a comment on the blog.
