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.
