Watch The Kids Perform at The White House Tree Lighting!!


So much to post about the previously announced PS22 Chorus performance at the National Tree Lighting at The White House yesterday, and a lot of footage to sort through. So in the meantime, you can watch the full 1 hour broadcast event live on PBS (check your local listings), or right now by clicking on the National Tree website link! The chorus performs with Common a little after the 42 minute mark. (Or just watch this vid below!)




You can also watch Fox News version (same audio, different video) of our performance here or below!




Definitely more to come!

to the kids-- everytime you take the stage it is nothing short of inspirational and this was certainly no exception! so poised and professional while performing and the sound was magical! You are a fantastic representation of why music should stay in schools and what can be done when you are given resources (the fantastic Mr. B) and opportunities!

AMAZING!!!

I've been a fan of the chorus and Mr B for a while now... I can't even remember when I first learned of you. But it was not long after the performance for Tori Amos. And things have skyrocketed over the past year or so for you guys! It's amazing! Making good choices, doing your best, working hard... look at where it gets you! Singing for the President and First Family! Wowza!! Way to go and keep up the practicing and doing what you need to do to stay in Chorus!!

The Link is fine, Chrissy. Make sure you have the latest version of Flash Player installed and if that doesn't work, check whether your spam filter is too sensitive.

@Chrissy: Oops, it sees I jumped the gun. I didn't read your post properly and thought you were having trouble with the video itself. So please just ignore the link I sent you. :)
