The Shoe Tunes, a chorus of 80 + voices, and other musicians from across the Greater Binghamton area perform songs from vintage EJ Workers Chorus repertoires and today. They recreate an E J Workers Chorus concert, a Sunday concert in En Joie Park, and showcase songs of the nationalities drawn to the Triple Cities by the Endicott Johnson Corporation - Czech, Irish, Italian, Polish, Slovak, and Ukrainian.
