PS22 Chorus 2009 MP3s!!



Okay, so it's been a long time coming, but they're finally here! We'll start with the 2 best quality recordings. (One was heard today on National Public Radio today!) These were recorded by a very cool guy named Steve who came to the school with a portable digital studio to record the chorus on a song for an upcoming iTunes release! (More on that another time!) We finished early enough that we were able to make time to get these tracks down, and the chorus knocked them both out in one take.

Steve was kind enough to master these mp3s on his own time, which successfully eliminated a lot of background noise. Here the kids are singing two songs that represent their success. The first is the most watched PS22 Chorus YouTube video, "Just Dance" by Lady Gaga. (It should be noted that we recorded Mariah separately and patched it on, as her part did not come across in the original recording.) The second is "Flavor" by Tori Amos, whose influence has been essential to the sound and repertoire of the PS22 Chorus.

And the mp3's sound GREAT!!! Have a listen!!


"JUST DANCE" by LADY GAGA feat. Tirzah & Mariah


"FLAVOR" by TORI AMOS feat. Maya & Samantha


Or put 'em on your iPod! Just right click and save!



There will be more mp3s to come, but the quality of these truly make our first installment something special! It is our pleasure to share them with you! Thanks again to Steve for all his hard work in recording these and getting them to us.

Awesome! Looking forward to the iTunes releases. I think, I'll purchase each and every song as there's not a single 'rotten apple' among them.
