Young@Heart Chorus: Two Perspectives
This presentation will provide an inside look into the workings of the internationally known (and locally beloved) Young@Heart Chorus from two different perspectives. In addition, clips will be screened from the documentary celebrating Young@Heart’s 40th anniversary, which was based on decades of archival material about the chorus. This charming film, produced by Julia van IJken, won a New England Emmy.
