Y@H Prison Project in the News

In October 2014 we launched our Prison Project: making music at two local prisons in weekly rehearsals. Today, the work continues.

Here's an article about our sold-out November 19, 2017 concert, which featured stirring performances by two participants from the Hampshire County Jail and House of Corrections, both on furlough from minimum security. 

Easthampton resident Sara Lee Bartley, 78, said  she loves the spirit the men bring to the chorus.

“Most of them have had a challenge and got off track, but haven’t we all had challenges?”

And here's a recent video from the front page of Huffington Post Japan. Special thanks to Kazuhiko Iimura for recording/editing the piece and for getting it published. Kazuhiko has been documenting our work with the prison for the past 2 years.

The mission of the Young@Heart Chorus is to present a unique and positive image of aging through the creation of originally staged musical and theater performances that incorporate songs not commonly sung by older Americans. Young@Heart provides a not-for-profit musical outlet for the elderly of Western Massachusetts in the form of vocal concerts and/or stage presentations. Young At Heart Chorus Inc is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
