The Young People's Chorus of New York City celebrates the 25th anniversary of its founding by Artistic Director Francisco J. Núñez, with a festive benefit concert at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium Monday, February 11 at 7 p.m. Renowned soprano Renée Fleming hosts a star-studded array of well-wishers from the worlds of classical, pop, jazz, Broadway, and dance. They include Broadway/concert artist Capathia Jenkins, emerging young singer-songwriter Kate Davis, the Antonio Ciacca Jazz Trio, and the Stephen Petronio Dance Company, who will join the Young People's Chorus of New York City and The New York Pops in a spectacular showcase, musically launching them into their second quarter century.

In a program with an Americana theme, more than 1,000 choristers from 7 through 18 from YPC's core after-school program, its in-school Satellite Schools program, national affiliates, and new after-school community chorus in Washington Heights - all representing the colors, sounds, and diversity of our country - will perform in a spectacular evening of entertainment, showmanship, and stirring music and dance with choreography by Jacquelyn Bird. Ranging from Handel's Zadok the Priest to songs made famous by Kenny Loggins, Gene Kelly, and Martha and the Vandellas, complete with choreography by Jacquelyn Bird, the program will send the audience Dancin' in the Street.

This celebratory concert, followed by a gala reception in the Grand Ballroom of the Plaza Hotel, encompasses an unforgettable evening that will support YPC, an organization that has transformed the lives of thousands of children over the past 25 years.

Honorary chairman of the evening is Steven A. Cahillane, president of Coca-Cola Americas, and YPC Board Chairman Adam D. Chinn of Centerview Partners, LLC, and Hugh Gordon of the Coca-Cola Company are co-chairs.

Concert tickets, from $60, are available now at Carnegie Hall box office, by phone through CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800, or online at
