Port Chester Middle School Sixth and
Seventh/Eighth Grade Chorus
May 19, 2005
Port Chester Middle School
Port Chester, NY
Well I must be doing something right because Ms. Morenstein (a/k/a Miz Mo') invited me to play with the middle school
chorus again this year and I didn't have to think for a second before I gave my answer. I was never an Andrew Lloyd
Webber fan, but when I saw the movie, the music from "Phantom" just blew me away." That was nothing compared to the
feeling of being awash in the voices of these talented kids while I was playing away with a fantastic group of instrumentalists.
"You Raise Me Up"
"Phantom of the Opera" - Kristin Puhekker (Chorus Director of the Kennedy Magnet
(Elementary) School) on keyboard - doing the gothic organ parts. Not shown Greg Guarino
(8th Grade on drums). (The guys - not pictured - were singing the "Phantom" part
during this section)
The combined choruses singing Bill Wither's "Lean on Me." A truly powerful performance. I was
privileged to be a part of this wonderful event.
