Young People's Chorus at Washington Heights to Present First Concert, 2/21

The Young People's Chorus of New York City (YPC) is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of its founding in 1988 by Francisco J. Núñez, a MacArthur "Genius" Fellow. YPC reaches more than 1,200 young people annually through its core after-school program; its in-school satellite program in 10 New York City public schools; national affiliates in Erie, Pennsylvania, and Tenafly, New Jersey; and now YPCWH. Founded on a mission of diversity and artistic excellence, YPC has become among today's most celebrated and influential youth choruses. Among its many awards is the nation's highest honor for youth programs, a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award presented to YPC by First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House.

The first concert will play on Thursday, February 21, 6:30 p.m. at Washington Heights Academy, 202 Sherman Avenue, featuring Young People's Chorus of New York City at Washington Heights (YPCWH), Johnny Rabe, Conductor.
