The PS22 Chorus -- Under The Tori Covers!



With all of our recent Tori Amos excitement(not the least of which was having our video of singing "Dragon" for Tori (and inciting tears) UNBELIEVABLY becoming Sunday's NUMBER 2 most watched YouTube video, and being showcased on multiple celebrity blog sites), I have received many requests for MP3 recordings of our Tori covers. So here are our Tori selections available for downlad. And not to worry -- for those of you anticipating this year's chorus's Tori covers (i.e. Dragon, Bouncing Off clouds, Happy Worker....) -- I will be recording and posting them soon. But here's the list as it stands.


PS22 Chorus -- Carbon (2003)

David -- "Not The Red Baron" by Tori Amos (2003)

PS22 Chorus -- "Wednesday" by Tori Amos (2003)

Deon -- "Flying Dutchman" by Tori Amos (2004)

Huge congrats to you and your chorus! What an amazing thing... those kids have an amazing teacher, and I know they will treasure their experience in this chorus for the rest of their lives. The encouragement and support and love for music you're giving to them is something that's so rare these days. You're an amazing teacher (with IMPECCABLE taste in music!), and wish you and your group all the best!

I just can't say enough good things - and I'm not the teeniest bit surprised you moved Tori to tears. I'm sitting here in tears myself at just how wonderful you are with those kids. What an amazing gift it is for them to have you as a teacher. Their version of 'Carbon' was amazing - I had to stop watching, lest I need to re-apply my makeup before going back to work after my lunch hour. You should be so so very proud.

I was out for a run yesterday, listening to Dragon, and an image popped into my head of the PS22 Chorus on stage with Tori, backing her up..... it could happen, she brought the London Choir onstage with her last tour! Keep up the amazing work guys, you are truly inspiring!

Oh man, I'm a huge Tori fan who paid lots of money for the "Flying Dutchman" EP back in the pre-digital age, and I have to say that Deon's version is AWESOME!! Thanks for posting this.

Can't wait for Dragon (oh, and what about that amazing version of twinkle you guys did?)

Peace out from Israel

I saw your site listed as a "blogs of note" and came to see....simply an amazing group of kids!
As a former teacher it touched my heart to see what an impact you are making on their lives...you will be one of those teachers they say when asked about favorites of all time...
