Inspiration From PS22 Chorus

I love how the kids from PS22 Chorus share joy through music. Here are some of my faves from them plus the Once in a Lullaby: The PS22 Chorus Documentary that shows how they got started:

About Once in a Lullaby: The PS22 Chorus Documentary

After an exciting run on the film festival circuit, including a hometown Tribeca premiere and numerous awards and accolades, the feature length documentary about the PS22 Chorus is available on YouTube . . . the place where it all began.

Public School 22 in NYC has more than just an amazing chorus, they have an amazing story.

These 5th graders went from performing in their school auditorium on Staten Island to closing the show at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards!

It all started when their dynamic and caring teacher Gregg Breinberg started posting videos of their performances on YouTube. The videos went viral captivating viewers from your house to the White House (where they performed for President Obama) with the students’ pure love of music. Celebrities and Indie Rockers alike started flocking to the elementary school to visit and perform. Then, at their annual Christmas concert they got a surprise visit from Oscar Co-Host Anne Hathaway who invited them to perform at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards.

With unprecedented access our crew follows them from the hallways and streets of Staten Island to the Red Carpet and backstage at the Kodak Theater for their big Oscar performance. Back stage drama combines with homesickness as the 10 year olds navigate the world of the entertainment elite. The drama culminates when the chorus director and the producer of the Oscars broadcast clash over creative differences and half the chorus looses their voices screaming at Disney the day before the big show.

This documentary is an inspiring feel-good story that shows us children have a lot to teach about music, and that a talented teacher can teach his students the most important lesson of all; within themselves is the power to do anything.
