Suzanne Wilson’s best bets
The Young@Heart Chorus has been part of this area’s artistic landscape for so long that it’s perhaps easy to take it for granted. But as a new exhibit of photos, videos, costumes and other memorabilia at Northampton’s Forbes Library shows, the chorus has an amazing 30-year history that has made it a big draw in countries around the world. Opening reception today from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Hosmer Gallery; the exhibit continues through Oct. 31. Free.
ANOTHER GOOD BET
To mark its three decades of song, the Young@Heart Chorus presents “Now and Then,” a show at the Academy of Music in Northampton, on Oct. 19 and 20 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 21 at 2 p.m. For tickets, call the Academy’s box office, 584-9032, ext. 105, or visit www.academyofmusictheatre.com.
