Young@Heart Chorus Alive & Well at The Paramount - WGBY Benefit Concert
24/7 Ticket Hotline: 1-800-838-3006

Western Massachusetts' own Young@Heart Chorus in concert to benefit WGBY, Public Television for western New England at the Paramount Theatre in Downtown Springfield

When Bob Cilman and Judith Sharpe organized the Young@Heart (Y@H) in 1982 all of the members lived in an elderly housing project in Northampton, MA called the Walter Salvo House. The first group included elders who lived through both World Wars.

The 2006 Walker George documentary "Young @ Heart", originally broadcast on Channel 4 television in the UK, won two Rose d'Or awards, the LA Film Festival Audience Award, screened at Sundance in 2008 and in April 2008 Fox Searchlight released it in North American cinemas. More recently the film has been released in cinemas around the world including the UK, France, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, New Zealand, and Japan. In 2008 the film won the Audience Award at the Sydney Film Festival, the Paris Cinema International Film Festival, Ghent Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Bergen International Film Festival, Warsaw Film Festival and others.  The film aired in January 2010 on the PBS series "Independent Lens".

The current performers in Young@Heart range in age from 73 to 89. There are some with prior professional theater or music experience, others who have performed extensively on the amateur level, and some who never stepped onto a stage before turning eighty. None of the current performers of Y@H were part of the original group that formed in 1982, but they have kept alive the spirit of the early pioneers and continue to push the group into glorious new directions.

Alive and Well, the Y@H in concert, features songs from past productions and also gives the chorus the opportunity to experiment with new music in front of a live audience.

This concert is made possible in part through support from Glenmeadow Retirement Community of Longmeadow, MA and The Republican/MassLive.
