Storyline

A chorus of 4th- and 5th-graders at the Brooklyn Friends School and a chorus of elderly retirees at a Brooklyn Jewish seniors' center combine to give an annual joint concert. Practicing separately for several months while communicating only as pen pals, they eventually meet for a rehearsal prior to their concert. The children's various preconceptions about older people, as well as the seniors' approach to aging and their young co-performers, are a principal focus. Written by scgary66

Trivia

Producer-director Nigel Noble got the idea to make the film after his son was one of the children in the previous year's concert. It was Noble's idea to have the children and seniors become pen pals prior to meeting, to help establish a connection between the two groups prior to their joint rehearsal. See more »
