There are few movies that disappoint because the end credits appear. This is one of them.

During the course of almost two hours we get to know various members of the chorus and can relate to them almost like old friends. Although the average age of the choir members is eighty, they sure don’t act it.

This feel good documentary tracks their efforts under the direction of Bob Sillman, their youthful music director, (he’s just a kid of 53), during a six week period in preparation for the annual show in their hometown of Northampton, Massachusetts. Along with a lot of good music and a few chuckles there are moments of serious reflection (even sadness) that taken together makes for a very entertaining outing.
