“CYO is an amazing organization, providing a unique opportunity for students in NEO to perform at a very high-level, often with other professional musicians,” Stanley said.

“Since the COVID situation made it impossible for us to even consider a collaborative performance together as part of their annual fundraising concert, I was delighted to work with the students on this socially-distanced recording of one of my favorite songs written with my longtime friend and bandmate Bob Pelander.”

The video also serves another purpose. It’s a fundraising effort for the Contemporary Youth Orchestra, which is in its 26th season and depends heavily on scholarships.
