CLEVELAND — Cleveland rock legend Michael Stanley collaborated with Northeast Ohio students on a new video production of his song “Another New Year’s Eve.”

Stanley teamed up with the Contemporary Youth Orchestra to record the song virtually with the students.

Watch the music video below:

“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.”

The video features 70 members of the Contemporary Youth Orchestra performing individually from home.

There is also a donation link that has been created to help fund the Contemporary Youth Orchestra, which allows all students who pass the audition to join, despite their ability to pay and providing scholarships to those in need.
