PS22 Wows the Oscars

PS22, a choir of fifth graders from Graniteville, Staten Island, New York, wows a worldwide audience during the 83rd Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood, California.If you tuned in to watch the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, you also watched a choir of 5th graders who performed “Somewhere over the Rainbow” at the end of the awards show.  They are known as PS22, which stands for Public School 22, in Graniteville, Staten Island, New York.  They are a real glee club known for performing pop song covers.  There are about 50-70 chorus members all directed by Greg Brienberg.  They put on a great performance at the Academy Awards, receiving many positive reviews from around the world.

PS22, a choir of fifth graders from Graniteville, Staten Island, New York, wows a worldwide audience during the 83rd Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood, California.You may have wondered how this school choir got their big break.  Well, the performance at the Oscars wasn’t their first public appearance.  Ever since 2006, the school choir has performed at many different venues all over New York.  They even made TV appearances on VH1, Good Morning America, and It’s On With Alexa Chung. New York Magazine has called them “the best-known elementary school chorus on the planet”.  Last December, Oscar co-host Anne Hathaway went to the choir’s winter concert, surprising the choir with the invitations to perform at the Academy Awards.  As you can imagine, the kids were ecstatic.  After giving a wonderful performance at the Oscars, the kids later performed with Katy Perry on Oprah.  This choir is truly talented and I hope to see their success continue!
