Young or Old, Singing Lifts You, Heart and Soul
May 5, 2017 at 6:30 pm–7:30 pm
“Young or Old, Singing Lifts You, Heart and Soul,” a collaboration between Golden Tones chorus and Natick High School’s Advanced Choir, welcomes music-lovers to a free, interactive, intergenerational, inspirational concert.
After experimenting with two previous projects together, the two choirs now invite the public to experience what happens when two generations of singers engage directly around music-making.
We’re going beyond a traditional joint choral concert. We plan to directly involve the audience in a way that mirrors our joint rehearsal process. If you come for an hour of music, you will also experience how people who live in separate worlds, like teens and seniors sometimes do, can still find ways to connect with each other, with understanding and compassion.
Find out what prompted students to express that working together “offers both generations a chance to learn from one another, something that doesn’t always happen in everyday life.”
