Tony Memmel & His Band with the Madison Youth Choirs
“Overture” and “Here We Go”
Directed by: Jon Kline
Note to the viewer: In 2011, I was invited to be an Artist In Residence with the Madison Youth Choirs (www.madisonyouthchoirs.org). This meant that throughout the fall semester we worked through choral arrangements of songs that I’ve written, talked about musicianship and songwriting, and (perhaps most importantly) about overcoming adversity in life.
Working with the students on a regular basis, fielding their questions, and hearing my music come to life in this exciting way has left a deep imprint on me. As you can imagine, the final concert was one of the most memorable musical experiences of my life.
Our new single “Clenched Hands Brave Demands” deals with maintaining a sense of optimism and wonder even as the world pulls us in different directions. As we begin a new year, I have hope that the days ahead will be brighter than those of 2012. One day at a time, let’s all resolve to keep our chins up and work toward a better tomorrow.
