Has anyone seen the videos on youtube of P.S. 22? P.S. 22 is a school here in Staten Island and the music teacher, Mr. B was brought on to save the music program. Instead of doing old stoogy music, he teaches the kid’s really great current music. My sister, Krissy put me on and I am addicted to watching them, especially on days when I am feeling a little cranky. It’s so beautiful to see 11 year olds with such promise in their eyes. Apparently I’m not the only one that thinks so, they’ve been featured all over TV, blogs, etc, and their videos combined have had over 6.5 million hits!
Here’s one of my favorite songs Viva La Vida by Coldplay performed by PS 22!
Also, check out their blog, http://ps22chorus.blogspot.com to learn about this fantastic music program!
Keep the arts in schools!
