Nightingale Song




Here's a great song from one of my favorite bands from back in my college days, Toad The Wet Sprocket. And some beautiful harmonies provided by the PS22 Chorus of 2010!

I am a 4th grade teacher in Ithaca NY and I believe in the power of music! I love it that these 5th graders enjoy singing and an added bonus is that we get to hear them!!! I watch every video, at least once a day to get my PS22 fix : ) I can't WAIT for a cd!!! Or can you upload some songs to iTunes? It would be an awesome fundraiser for your school...!

I really can't stop listening to this-- the altos did a killer job with the melody!

Keep rolling out the hits!

ps-- congrats on the 16 million-- this group sure has lived up to the ever increasing standards of PS 22 legacy!

Mr. B -
Ditto to both Miss Coffey's and Suz's comments.

I AM WONDERING IF YOU MIGHT DO A PROTRACTED VIDEO THE KIDS TALKING ABOUT "WHAT PS22 CHORUS MEANS/HAS MENAT TO ME. MORE COMMENTS IN THE VEIN OF LEAH'S AND ETHAN'S FOR THE DAILY NEWS PIECE WOULD BE SO GREAT.

Ongoing adoration of the work you and kids are doing. Hope they get a million hits video soon.

This is one of my favorite songs ever, Mr. B. I hadn't heard it in a long time, but will be getting this album back out and on my iPod ASAP!

Thanks for the reminder, and to the kids for doing such a great job. Love it!

Great song! "Fear" is still one of my top-5 favorite start-to-finish albums.

Thanks for this song!

I also love the kid jamming out at 1:10. Awesome.

You're doing great things, Mr B!

Mr B,

the first video I saw was Lisztomania, which I loved very very much ..... and now, seeing one of my favourite songs from the 90ies being performed by your choir just made me cry :)

thank you very very much and keep it up

With love from Europe!
