Here is yet another exciting indie-band cover from the PS22 Chorus of "Round and Round" by Ariel Pink! The kids learned and recorded this after only 2 practices, despite the fact that there are some incredibly difficult changes in the song! So proud of them for the heartrending and stoic delivery, and truly taking this song in a whole different direction. Still impressed after all these years at how these children truly know how to interpret a song and make it their own.
Thanks to Ms. Lisa for her beautiful filming!
