Young People's Chorus of NYC Host Family Sing At Carnegie Hall 2/27
What is it like to sing with the globe-trotting Young People's Chorus of New York City? On Sunday, February 27, children and their families will become honorary members when Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute presents the acclaimed chorus conducted by its artistic director and founder Francisco J. Núñez in Carnegie's first-ever "Family Sing" at Zankel Hall at 1 p.m. The event includes lots of audience participation, such as call and response in Tshotsholoza, a traditional Zulu folk song; and singing and dancing in the up-tempo Spanish song Oye.But all singers need to warm up, so families are encouraged to arrive at 12 noon for vocal warm-ups and games, such as learning to sing in rounds or canons. Throughout the warm-ups and the concert, members of YPC will be on hand to offer help and encouragement. Children can practice beforehand by checking the Carnegie Hall Web sites in the weeks ahead for sheet music and audio clips.This event is recommended for children from 5 to 12 but will be fun for anyone who loves to sing.
