I was driving into Long Island from where I now live (Seneca Falls) and of course was worried about traffic. I was adamantly listening to 1010 wins when I heard your voice and couldn't believe it!

I immediately called Gina and Tinna!! We are so proud of you and cannot believe all that you've done so far. (We knew you'd always go big!)

Congratulations to you Mr.B and PS 22! I'll definitely be watching from good ole Seneca Falls.

I just watched your Anne Hathaway video and what really got me is that at around 3min 20 sec, the director/teacher goes on stage and helps a boy who is obviously having sensory problems with all the screaming off the stage in the most inconspicuous and caring way. The fact that this teacher, with all the excitement happening, actually takes notice of this boy's distress and then takes the action that he does, shows the measure of this man's humanity. It is good to know that educators of this caliber are out there! All the amazing things to happen are so deserved. Also, the boy returns to the stage around the 5 minute mark to share such a wonderful experience...so right. I didn't know about you until this morning, but I'm a fan now.

Mr B you are the true meaning of the term "teacher"
In a time when there are so many issues with schools and teachers, you stand above it all.
Congratulations to you and your beautifully diverse chorus!

Marjorie said...

Mr B,

Even though we no longer walk the halls of PS 22, we feel your joy!

You all deserve it!

Juliette said...

Mr B. !!!
Congratulations to you all, this is such a wonderful experience and you totally deserve it !!

The kids reaction is absolutely incredible and the fact that this was given to you by Anne Hathaway who I absolutely love and admire, is even more amazing...

I'm so proud of you all, and so happy to finally get to see you in my own television and not on a small computer screen !!

I'll love watching the oscars even more this year :)

Love and HAPPINESS from France !!
Juliette

I can't even tell you how much I love this choir! And Mr. B, the work you're doing with them (not to mention the song selection) is incredible. I'm a children's book author and seeing kids inspired in this way is what I live for. Love it, love it, love it! I was in choirs all through high school and college and it's an experience that stays with you for life. Congratulations!

On a side note: My parents are renewing their vows for their 40th anniversary this April 24 and I would LOVE to have you and the kids perform during the ceremony. Of course, you are all internationally known now, so I'm sure you're booked solid, but just letting you know you're on my wish list!

Lots of love,
Crystal Velasquez
