PS22 Chorus, Young@Heart & Sci-Tech Band Are 'Forever Young'

It is an impossible task to translate into words the magic that happened onstage yesterday as Young@Heart, PS22 Chorus & Sci-Tech Band performed separately and together during an epic concert in Northampton, MA. The "inter-generational mash-up" brought tears, delight, and boundless inspiration to both the appreciative audience and even to those of us on stage while performing! Check out three amazing highlights below and witness for yourself some of the performances that helped obliterate the generation gap!!

So many thanks to Y@H director Bob Cilman for reaching out to us and making this collaboration possible! Thanks also go to Ms. Lisa for filming the beautiful videos capturing the moment, and Mrs. Panzella for her amazing photos! More below!

Hall Of Fame!

Turn up the volume on your speakers and be prepared for a big dose of musical adrenalin, because the PS22 Chorus of 2013 serves up a powerhouse performance of the incredible song "Hall Of Fame" by The Script ft.! Certainly this feelgood performance is worthy of its namesake! (And of course a little impromptu chant of Sweet Brown's "Ain't Nobody Got Time For That" can only exponentially increase the entertainment factor of ANY video....)

Thanks to Zach Johnson for suggesting the cover! And while we're on the topic of "Hall Of Fame," check out who's following the PS22 Chorus on Twitter!

Yup, that's LeBron James! Now not only can we admire his skills on the basketball court, but we can also commend him for his excellent taste in music!  ;)

And in case you missed it, below is the version we did last month during our collaboration with Ithacappella!
