Pictures of You by The Cure
It kills me that we continue to cut arts programs in this county. Just imagine being 10 years old and taking part in this amazing chorus. Imagine the confidence that would be gained at such a young age. Imagine working as a team and being a part of something that is bigger than you. Imagine how it would have helped you as you grew up. And yet these programs continue to get cut in school districts around the country... Okay, I'm stepping off my soap box now to move on to what makes me smile today.
7. The PS22 Chorus
I recognize that I'm a little behind on this as PS22 has been taking over the internet for the last year or so, but I thought there might be a few of you out there that hadn't heard of them. These kids don't just sing the words, they feel them. Watch how incredibly expressive every face is, how they dance without concern for what others make think of them.
New York Magazine featured a great story on this chorus comprised of 5th graders(!!) that you should definitely read since my recap won't do it any justice.
Cheers to PS22's chorus director Gregg Breinberg! Your passion and dedication to these students is an inspiration to us all! And to the students that have been a part of the PS22 chorus, please don't ever stop singing!
