A lovely performance of “Auld Lang Syne” by director Tyler Jones. As we enter the first moments of the New Year, “For the Sake of Old Times” opens by asking how one should respond to the memories of the past: should 2020 be forgotten?

“Folks will soon gather to celebrate, many in surgical masks, eager to leave this year behind with a song whose melody is known more than its meaning. But then what? Where does the collective trauma of 2020 go, despite the optimism that better days are magically ahead?… Now, in a strange New Year’s season of quiet refrain, the song honors a time of progress and struggle that deserves to not be forgotten any time soon.”
