The Young People’s Chorus of New York City® (YPC), founded and conducted by MacArthur “genius” Fellow Francisco J. Núñez, is a multicultural youth chorus internationally renowned for its superb sound and electrifying performances. Frequent performers at Carnegie Hall, YPC regularly accepts invitations to represent the U.S. at international choral festivals, and is frequently seen on national TV with such guest artists as Joshua Bell, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, and NEA Jazz Master Delfeayo Marsalis. Audiences rave about YPC’s ability to equally execute everything from classical to gospel, pop and world music with energy that leaps from the stage. For a little concert preview, listen to YPC performing “Rikitikitavi” and check out videos of “Vere Languores Nostros” and “Take This Hammer.” This is a performance not to be missed!
