Photo Flash: Young People¬'s Chorus Gala at Lincoln Center
Continuing a season marked by two national awards and ongoing performances throughout the U.S., in Europe and Asia, the sold-out March 12 Young People's Chorus of New York City (YPC) Gala at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, has turned out to be the most successful in the chorus's history.
Check out the photos from the gala below!
Next season the Young People's Chorus of New York City, a 2011 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award-winner, will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its founding and its 15th anniversary as an independent choir. According to press notes, proceeds from this gala will enable the organization to continue and expand its founding mission of not only providing children of all racial, religious, and economic backgrounds with YPC's unique program of music education and choral performance, but also serving as a model for choirs in other cities and countries.
Gala guests included many supporters from business, philanthropy, and the arts-from the evening's honorees philanthropist Bobbie Katzander and President of Commercial Banking at Capital One Bank Michael C. Slocum to Margo Lion from the President's Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, philanthropist Henry Buhl, Cynthia Green from the Green Fund, Tish Rabe who is carrying on Dr. Seuss's legacy, and Philip H. Lovett, a founding partner and principal of Millennium Partners.
