So, I will admit that I do not know the full history of the PS22 Chorus and their director, Mr. B. All that I know is that these kids are amazing, and more importantly, that we have a lot to learn from them.
I have written here before about how I feel music truly connects our hearts and minds in unique ways. It can be incredibly freeing to be both a performer and an audience member.
Well, the kids at PS22 in Staten Island must understand that more than most, because their power to not only create beautiful music, but convey beauty in their music, is—dare I say it—incomparable.
Please enjoy these three clips from YouTube, but then go to their blog and Youtube profile and peruse the many many videos documenting the talent and passion that these young people have and aren’t afraid to show. Kudos to Mr. B for being such an inspiring educator.
I hope this brings a smile to you today! We all need that some days…

I wish more people in life could express themselves so honestly…
