Yesterday the PS22 Chorus of 2009 regrouped for an eagerly anticipated appearance at The Bandstand in Central Park at the NYC Dept. Of Ed's Back To School Bash! The kids sang 4 songs, including one they just learned that morning! That song is "The World" by Empire Of The Sun, and Elijah, Allie, and April helped out big time! Here is some footage of the kids practicing it below.
In addition to the new song, the kids also performed two of their most celebrated renditions -- "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay and "Just Dance" by Lady Gaga! April sounded as lovely as ever, and Tirzah rocked the mike! Chorus member Mary even filled in for Mariah and did a great job on the rap!
We also snuck in an acoustic guitar version of "An Angel" by the Kelly Family as an encore, and Allie and the chorus did their usual exquisite job!
Of course no PS22 Chorus trip is complete without some behind the scenes moments with our local celebs. Here they take a moment to alternately thank AND threaten to sue their fans! Good stuff.
Below you can check out more pics from the event.
