"The Drive to Sing" is a new documentary about choirs during the pandemic and the importance of making music together. It is full of beautiful choral music recorded in very unusual places, and interviews with singers and directors about their experiences. It features many choruses in eastern MA and beyond. This uplifting film has been accepted into 9 film festivals and was nominated for Best Documentary at Shawna Shea film festival in Worcester, MA. It is family-friendly and resonates with anyone who has sung in a choir. Join Marlborough-based director and producer, Bryce and Kathryn Denney, for the first public screening in the Boston area.
