Michael Stanley joins Contemporary Youth Orchestra to create ‘Another New Year’s Eve’ fundraising video

The video features 70 orchestra members performing individually from home.

CLEVELAND — Editor's note: Video at the top of this story is from June 11, 2019.

You’ve never heard Michael Stanley’s Another New Year’s Eve quite like this.

The Cleveland rocker’s song is being used for a new video production in collaboration with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra.

The video, which will debut at 8 p.m. on Dec. 11, is being showcased as a fundraising effort to support the work of CYO. It features 70 orchestra members performing individually from home.

“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 in a press release. “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.”

A donation link will be attached to the video.

"Another New Year’s Eve, from the album The Hang is the perfect choice for the 2020 holiday season,” said Barry Gabel, CYO Board Member and Live Nation Cleveland executive. “It expresses hope and new beginnings at a time when we all need a reminder that we’ll get through this difficult time by focusing on the good we can do by simply caring for each other. This project brings together two Cleveland icons very dear to me, my longtime friend Michael Stanley, and the Contemporary Youth Orchestra.”
