YPC Launches After-School Chorus in NYC

Share This:

In a celebration of its 25th anniversary season, the Young People’s Chorus of New York City is expanding its award-winning music education program to even more of the city’s schoolchildren through the launch of its first after-school community chorus, the Young People’s Chorus of New York City in Washington Heights (YPCWH).

YPCWH, the first community chorus in a new YPC initiative, will be located at P.S. 366 (Washington Heights Academy) and was established in partnership with Washington Heights Academy principal Renzo Martinez. Weekly after-school rehearsals begin on Thursday, November 8.

Taught by YPC-trained conductors and accompanied by professional pianists, this YPC curriculum, based on the methods of former Choral Director magazine cover subject Francisco Núñez, provides children with a comprehensive music education that exceeds national standards, as well as a path to higher education and a haven where schoolchildren throughout the community can meet and bond.
