Documentary | 108 min. | 2008
This film takes place in Northampton, MA, home to the Young@Heart chorus, whose average age is 80. Most of the chorus members prefer classical music and musicals
to the pop and rock given to them by their music director. But the singers’ determination over six weeks of rehearsals despite illness and tragedy makes for a moving, climactic concert.
“. . . The chorus’ tireless musical director leads the group through a series of hilariously chaotic rehearsals, proving that hard rock can be hard work—especially when you’re hard of hearing! Climaxing in a triumphant performance that will leave you cheering, their inspiring story celebrates the unbreakable bonds of friendship and the life-affirming power of music!” — DVD Box
