Andrew Canlon Makes A Hit With The Chorus


Former student Andrew Canlon, one of the star soloists from my first year teaching music at PS60, came for a visit to PS22, and blew us all away with the progress of his incredible talent! One of the coolest people you'll ever meet, Andrew has been continuing his musical career, studying, creating, and performing. He just had a recent radio interview/performance in Florida (one of the DJ's he spoke to was former N Sync member Chris Kirkpatrick!), and he even mentioned the PS22 Chorus during his interview. How cool is that?!


So this meeting of the choral generations took place on June 10th, 2008, and bore many musical fruits! Here are 2 videos of Andrew singing with The PS22 Chorus:

Mr. B said...

believe me, i miss you too. i'm sitting here watching your videos, and to (almost) quote one of our songs, "i'm laughing and i'm weeping." you guys have made me so proud this year. it was a very emotional day having to say goodbye to you guys, much moreso than i anticipated. but you guys BETTER stay in touch!!!!!! and know that i'll always be here for you. mrs. burns and miss lisa feel the same, i know you know that.
