This is Getting Old...

What started out in 1982 at a Western Massachusetts elderly housing project to joyfully pass the time instead of passing before your time has developed into the stereotype-defying, genre-bending, generation-crossing musical extravaganza better known as The Young@Heart Chorus. Ranging in age from 73-89, these folks do in retirement what most teenagers fantasize about: tour the globe rocking sold out shows. From The New York Times to TIME, Jay Leno to The Daily Show and stars of a hit indie documentary, Young@Heart, this group of spirited seniors continues to wow audiences from Northampton to New Zealand, Europe to Japan, with their knock-your-socks-off musical celebration that proves it’s “possible to grow old without growing boring” (The Dartmouth). This year Young@Heart Chorus celebrates its 30th anniversary with more daring adventures, a full tour schedule, a new concert show, and a brand new album. Young@Heart receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Korein Foundation, and the City of Northampton.
BOB CILMAN BIO
Young@Heart Chorus Founder and Director since 1982, Bob Cilman is also the Executive Director of the Northampton Arts Council where he presents a broad range of arts events at the historic Academy of Music Theatre. Cilman was born and raised in Rochester, New York. He spent a couple of years at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and eventually received a bachelor's degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in American History, but has learned much more from the members of the Young@Heart Chorus. He is married to furniture maker, Polly Cassel and they have two daughters, Stella and Eva.
The Young@Heart is a rowdy bunch of 70 and 80 year olds singing music 'your mother wouldn't like.' In fact, they are positively attracted to the bad boys and naughty girls of the last 50 years, covering Jimi Hendrix to OutKast with a good measure of The Flaming Lips and Radiohead. The Young@Heart Chorus has become infamous for its defiant and moving performances. As its name suggests, age is integral to this company. Slaughtering any good-natured sympathy by using age as an ironic weapon, the Young@Heart has crafted a surprising and hilarious work that is not about old people performing, but rather a performance that happens to feature older people.
