Another song done at the kids' insistence, and the result speaks for itself. Simply beautiful....

PS22 Chorus pays tribute to the enormous talent of Tori Amos with this cover of the beautiful song, "Oysters," from her latest album, "Unrepentant Geraldines!" The kids give an epic performance on a difficult piece of music, and the duet of Alyssa & Janiya is simply out of this world!

Hard to believe there's only about a month and a half left before the class of 2014 moves on to intermediate school! Some of my colleagues requested "Best Day Of My Life" by American Authors to be sung as the theme to this year's graduation ceremony. PS22 Chorus (and the extraordinary Juan on lead vocals) demonstrates that this was indeed a wise suggestion.... The kids already got some great feedback from American Authors via Twitter & Facebook, saying, "You all KILLED IT!"
Love this acoustic PS22-ified version of the bizarrely beautiful new single, "Digital Witness," by the brilliant St. Vincent! The kids got some amazing praise for this rendition from St. Vincent (via Twitter & Facebook) and many online publications including SPIN Magazine, Stereogum, and Huffington Post!
PS22 Chorus goes old school, bringing back "Sour Times," a 90s trip hop classic from Portishead! We weren't really expecting to film this as it was only our first rehearsal upon return from the spring break, but the kids gave such a bravura performance on this difficult song, we decided to record and post it in our original one-camera format.
On Monday, April 21, the PS22 Chorus was honored Saturday at the Innovation Cities Tour NYC! Former 2004 member, Clive, helped represent by reprising his amazing performance of "Me And My Charms" by the brilliant Kristen Hersh! Thanks to Julie Anixter & Craig Hatkoff for an amazing night!
