In a world before child labor laws, many young people got factory jobs to help their families get by. One visionary educator saw music as a way to bring structure and meaning into the lives those children and so in 1918 Professor C. C. Heintzman formed the Working Boys Band. Through music, discipline, and compassion, the Professor shaped a rough-and-tumble group of young men into a Twin Cities institution. This world premiere musical celebrates the place of music in the lives of young people with a flourish of romance, a crescendo of patriotism, and the growing drumbeat of the approaching Great War.
