Art + Entertainment + Music
What started out in 1982 at a Northampton elderly housing project to joyfully pass the time instead of passing before your time has developed into the stereotype-defying,
generation-crossing musical extravaganza better known as the Young@Heart Chorus. From The New York Times to TIME, The Ellen Show to The Daily Show and stars of the hit Fox Searchlight documentary, Young@Heart, this group of seniors, ranging in age from 75-94, has performed from Northampton to New Zealand, Europe to Japan, on over 55 tours around the world proving it’s “possible to grow old without growing boring.”
Mission: Our mission is to eliminate ageism and shatter stereotypes of growing old through innovative musical performances that inspire and unite diverse communities.
