The Rendezvous was a smashing success beyond our wildest dreams!

Please note, some videos have a long lag time at the beginning (up to 5 minutes) though you will see the logo. You will want to fast forward past that. Move the cursor farther along the control bar/timeline to get into the content. Small pictures will show you what is showing where the cursor is. Double click below to watch a video.

  1. Thank you Marisa and the UpBeat team for including the Rendezvous article in this issue of UpBeat. It was a very special event. The two unique musical shows had the talents of 35 singers and musicians representing the years of 1964 through 1982, and the specialty casts of 2009 Branson and 2015 Tapestry Cast. Among the performing singers and musicians were 3 generations of our legacy musical founders. We were honored to have seven of the nineteen Up with People honored Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees sharing the same stage for the first time. In addition to the 2 unique musical shows we had an Opening Morning session that gave a view of the origins of this movement that eventually became known as Up with People. Included in the weekend event were sessions for three different book presentations. Our entire team were all volunteers and it was supported by a technical and professional production team of 14 volunteer alumni, and an amazing support team of over 20 alumni. Thank you again for highlighting this wonderful event and sharing with the alumni community of Up with People.
