Bonfire Heart

A blazing hot rendition of "Bonfire Heart" by James Blunt from the PS22 Chorus, given an extra punch by our latest discovery -- 3rd grader Malcolm on the drums!!

Me & My Charms

PS22 Chorus of 2004 alum Clive returns to lead the group in a breathtaking version of one of my all-time favorite songs, "Me And My Charms," by the extraordinary Kristin Hersh! Clive just continually improves with time, and sounds absolutely incredible! And we should mention the video was filmed by chorus member Matthew!

Kristin Hersh tweeted that she was "moved to tears" by the video and sent her love to the kids for their amazing performance!

LOVE SOMEBODY: The Valentine's Day Project

Recently I reached out to Joe Vercellino, the music teacher at Northpointe Academy in Detroit, Michigan, to congratulate him on the amazing work he's doing with his Beasts of The Beat project. (Someone had sent me a link to a local news station spotlighting the group via Twitter.) He responded saying he'd love to collaborate, connecting his Northpointe Academy Chorus with the PS22 Chorus, suggesting we sing "Love Somebody" by Maroon 5 for a special Valentine's Day video. The results are what you see and hear, an innovative video submitted to promote music education, connectivity, and some seasonal love!  Happy Valentine's Day!
