Mr. B and 22

Well, the new school year is underway. I, for one, am eager to see and hear what Gregg Breinberg, aka Mr. B, and his 5th grade musicians at PS22 on Staten Island, New York have planned for this year. If you are not familiar with the PS22 chorus, have I got a surprise for you!

The remarkable passion and commitment of a teacher in a big inner city school has culminated year after year in remarkable music and a group of marked and remarkable kids. They are marked for life with the knowledge that they can achieve anything that they envision, plan for, and work hard for. They are remarkable for their astonishing musical accomplishments as group. I’m not sure, but I’ll bet these kids can’t wait for school to start each year.

Mr. B is a wonderful example of practicing GYA on the job.

Below are three of the many performances that you will find by searching ‘PS22’ on YouTube.
