PS22 Chorus Sings "White Christmas"

I love these kids. I love their enthusiasm and the wonderful spirit they project. The PS22 Chorus is an elementary school chorus comprised of 60-70 fifth graders from Public School 22 in Graniteville, Staten Island (New York). Part of the credit for all this great entertainment goes to the musical director, Gregg Breinberg, also known as Mr. B. Students are assigned to the chorus after an annual auditioning process at the beginning of each school year. PS22 is the largest elementary school in Staten Island which pulls from a wide cross section of ethnic groups and socio-economic levels. The chorus meets twice a week during school hours to practice, and performs throughout the year at school functions, local events, and on special requests. It has been featured on several major national news and music networks after its videos had gained international attention within YouTube. As of December 12, 2009 the chorus’s videos have been watched more than 13,000,000 times. If you haven't experienced their music yet, it is guaranteed to put the merry back in your Christmas! Enjoy!
