Internationally renowned for its superb virtuosity and brilliant showmanship, YPC will be conducted by Elizabeth Núñez in a program that includes children's classics, musical theater, and folk music from around the world.
Tickets are free for YPC's performance at the New York Hall of Science, which is located in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens at 47-01 111th Street. More information is available at 718-699-0005 or at www.carnegiehall.org.
The Young People's Chorus of New York City was founded in 1988 by Artistic Director Francisco J. Núñez on a mission of diversity and artistic excellence. Since then, YPC has harnessed the power of music to transform the lives of thousands of children, while heightening an awareness of the unlimited potential of children to rise to unforeseen levels of artistry. Over 1,400 children from ages 7 to 18 participate annually through YPC's core after-school program, its satellite program in New York City public schools and two thriving after-school community choruses in Manhattan: in Washington Heights and at Goddard Riverside Community Center. In 2011 First Lady Michelle Obama presented YPC with America's highest award for young people, a National Arts & Humanities Youth Program Award.
