On Thursday, the PS22 Chorus joined forces with John Legend, Natasha Bedingfield, Bill Clinton, host Michelle Williams (formerly of Destiny's Child) and an array of prestigious performers at the wonderful Clarins Million Meals Concert for FEED Foundation at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center! The kids were incredibly received, performing three standout selections that earned them a standing ovation midway through the performance! This performance of "Castle On A Cloud" from Les Miserables is my personal favorite of the evening, as we had the honor of being accompanied by the renowned and incredibly talented young violist, David Aaron Carpenter, who arranged his own accompaniment to the PS22 Chorus performance only days before the event! The kids only had the opportunity to run through this with David once at the soundcheck before the actual performance which you see here. Faith is gorgeous on the leads, and the chorus sounds beautiful!
Thanks to David for enhancing this performance to perfection, Michelle Williams for the beautiful introduction, and most importantly to the Feed Foundation for the important work they do and for including us in the festivities! Thanks also to Ms. Lisa for filming, and to Feed Foundation as well as Bonnie & Victor Breinberg for the pics on this post!
