PS22 live at the Oscars

I feel like a proud parent and I don’t even know these kids from New York!  I first came across them a few months back and wrote about them in my post “The Importance of The Arts In Education”

Yesterday, they performed in front of a live audience of millions singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” at the conclusion of the Oscar Award Ceremony in Los Angeles.

This shows what can be done by a group of children who love singing, who are led by a charismatic teacher who lets them know what they can achieve… and just look what they have achieved!

As I said in my original post, at a time when music teaching and other arts subjects is under threat due to budget cuts…we neglect this aspect of our children’s education at our peril! Just ask the kids from PS22.
