I updated the quality of the videos on the previous post -- the sound is much better! Check it out!

PS22 Chorus will be performing at the Rainbow Room on October 30th!

Here's a sneak preview of a performance we are VERY excited about. The kids will be performing for such talents as Academy Award-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden & the cast of the Tony Award-winning musical, "The Jersey Boys". For more info about the event go to:

YMCA of Greater New York

This was recorded today at rehearsal....

"Happy Workers" (performed originally by Tori Amos)


An excerpt of an original song by Justin Rolon & Mr. B. Justin wrote the lyrics and melody to the part he is singing on and, of course, continues to astonish all ears.... And the chorus & Mariah (who performs here with such feeling & confidence) sing the parts that I wrote so much more beautifully than I ever could!! Wait 'til you hear the full version!! This may end up being another all-time favorite. (Though I think I've probably said that a lot throughout my career....)

More Highlights From the PS22 Chorus of 2005/6 (and more Tori...)

As this year's chorus is hard at work for their upcoming holiday performance, we present this highlight from last year's, "That's What I Like, Mick" performed by Tori Amos (and originally by Chas & Dave}. This one's a lot of fun! And Brittany does a wonderful job on the solo!

Justin was in 4th grade when he sang this beautiful Christmas song, "I Wonder As I Wander" at last year's holiday show. We are all in great anticipation of his performance at the Martin Luther King Observance (read previous post!)

PS22 Chorus sings "God Bless The USA (Proud To Be An American)" for N.Y.C. Mayor Michael Bloomberg

Soon after the September 11th tragedy, the PS22 Chorus sang for Mayor Bloomberg at City Hall. This medley of "God Bless The USA" and "America The Beautiful" was a huge audience-pleaser (and Mr. B's dad's all-time favorite!)
