| Developments Concerning Elton's MSG Gig--

Adam Chester conducted the Brooklyn Youth Chorus for Eltons birthday concert, and considers it one of the highlights of his life.
According to his Web site, ''68 incredibly gifted children, ages 11-18, left their choral textbooks at home to allow me to guide them though 16 Elton John songs of the 35 he performed that evening! And to think none of them were even born when these songs originally came out. Yet as the New York Times mentioned in their review, they managed to bring a sense of uplift, along with some raw power' that made each song sound as exciting as they did the 1st day they were played on the radio!''
Highlights of the concert can still be seen at http://music.msn.com/eltonjohn?GT1=9182
Another worthwhile site is www.myfoxny.com, which has Fox 5 News' recent report about the choir and Adam.
And if that's not sufficient, Phil Ramone will be putting the finishing touches on a DVD of the entire concert to be released in the very near future!.
