Movie Matinee: Special Screening

This week’s Movie Matinee is a special screening of “The Drive to Sing,” a documentary about choirs during the pandemic and the importance of making music together. Through the unique lens of “car choirs,” we feel the passion of singers and directors who HAD to find a way. 

Featuring choruses from MA, NJ, VA, WI, and Alberta, this uplifting film has been accepted into 11 film festivals and won Best Indie Feature at Oniros Film Awards in New York. Full of beautiful choral music recorded in very unusual places, it is family-friendly and resonates with anyone who has sung in a choir.

Doors open at 1:15 PM. The movie starts at 1:30 PM and runs approximately 75 minutes. Afterwards, join director and producer Bryce and Kathryn Denney for a Q&A. 

This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Brookline Public Library.
