The Sixth Annual Talent Show by the residents of The Greens at Cannondale on Sunday, June 22, wowed the audience once again. “From Our Hearts to Yours” was an original production, a feast of the love songs that are the best of our popular song inheritance, when lyrics were heartfelt and melody was memorable. Now in their 80s and 90s, these performers knew whereof they sang. These were the songs they sang and danced to, from much younger days.
“From Our Hearts to Yours” had a new format, with personal memories of marriages lasting 68, 64, 63, 61, 56, 48, and 45 years. From the duet of Let Me Call You Sweetheart by Phil Antedomenico and Yvonne French to the bouncy A Bushel and A Peck, the soloists and chorus gave each song the sentiment, humor and wisdom seldom heard anymore. After all, The Greens singers lived through the music of Always, Let’s Fall In Love and I Can’t Give You Anything But Love. For this chorus, they were more than just songs.
