PS22 Gets A Standing O at The Golden Goggles 2010



On Monday, the PS22 Chorus performed at the Golden Goggles 2010, a fundraiser in the guise of an awards ceremony, honoring some of our nation's top swimmers! While there, the kids got high fives from some of the most renowned Olympic athletes, including Michael Phelps, Summer Sanders, & Ryan Lochte! Performing a total of 7 selections in all, the audience and honorees were treated to a healthy dose of PS22!! Check out the entire performance below from beginning to end, including the debut of the kids' newest song, "Walking On Sunshine" by Katrina & The Waves!


PS22 opens the show with Alicia Keys/Jay-Z "Empire State of Mind Pt. XXII"



"No One" / "One Day" Alicia Keys / Matisyahu



"Snow Angel" by Tori Amos (& a message from Summer Sanders!)



"Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina & The Waves



"Paparazzi" / "Living On A Prayer" by Lady Gaga / Bon Jovi



It was truly an honor to perform for some of our nation's most impressive athletes, and they in turn were equally enthusiastic about hearing the kids perform!! Olympic gold medal winner Natalie Coughlin even tweeted and Facebooked that her favorite part of the event was PS22!



Universal Sports wrote up the event, and dedicated the last 5 paragraphs to the chorus and their amazing performance! Check that out here.

Props go to all of our amazing soloists, including (in order of appearance) Brianna "Krispy Kreme," Renee, Denise, Marquis, Kayla, & Azaria! Big thanks to Ms. Lisa for all the amazing videos, and to Ms. Laurie & Mrs. Panzella for the great pics on this post! Also thanks to Mr. Eberle for joining in on the guitar!

That turned my Wednesday lastly to a great day. Thank you so much!!
Less than 3 month are over and the chorus performed at so many great shows. Awesome!


But I have to criticize the audience...If I would have the chance to hear the chorus - live...I wouldn't gibber all the time...

But the chorus did a very very great job!
