Young People's Chorus Opens Its Fourth Decade with 'Listen to the Music' Gala

Young People's Chorus of New York City, under the direction of Artistic Director/Founder Francisco J. Núñez, marks the start of their fourth decade with "Listen to the Music," a non-stop, high energy Gala Evening on Tuesday, March 12, at Jazz at Lincoln Center. It opens at 7 p.m. with YPC's award-winning choristers and special guest artists Ashley Brown and Nmon Ford in a musically diverse program, highlighted by the sounds of "The Seventies" and continues with dinner in the Mandarin Oriental.

Hosted by YPC Associate Artistic Director Elizabeth Núñez and directed and choreographed by Jacquelyn Bird, the concert includes a musical excursion back to the days of The Bee Gees, Queen, Elton John, and Leonard Bernstein...with exciting choreography to match. YPC's choristers will also join baritone Nmon Ford, fresh from his recent triumph in Bernstein's Mass at Mostly Mozart, in excerpts from the Mass, and will join Ashley Brown in a medley of songs from Mary Poppins, the role she originated on Broadway.

The entire Gala Evening is a celebration of YPC's Corporate Leadership Honoree Laura Schwab, President of Aston Martin The Americas, and its Humanitarian Honoree Alexa Davidson Suskin, Executive Director of The Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Foundation.
Concert-only sponsorship tickets, as well as tickets to the entire gala evening, are available at, by emailing, or by calling 212-289-7779, ext. 16.
