Up now we have PS/IS 178Q 6th-8th Grade Chorus and conductor Emma Brondolo. What a cool first piece - Niska Banja by Nick Page. Both Michael and Jon are playing on this piece - we have four hands on the piano! I wonder what language this is in??
They sing When You Believe from the "Prince of Egypt" to wrap up their set. John Hadfield adds some great percussion to the piece, and it sounds great!...and the crowd goes wild!
Taking the stage next is PS 130 from Chinatown, singing a Lullaby from Four Chinese Children's Songs. The song keeps switching between Chinese and English - Beautifully sung! Now they are singing Dance, Boatman, Dance...and there's choreography! That can't be easy! What a fun piece, and the movement looks great - over 100 children on stage and they're all moving together! Great energy, too!
