AloneTogether is a transcendent musical journey into the subconscious mind of today’s youth during a time of global turmoil and transformation. Expressed through new pieces created by 15 of the world’s leading composers and emerging songwriters, AloneTogether takes an innovative, experimental approach toward understanding and expressing the hearts and minds of children through the course of the pandemic.  For the first time, YPC enthusiasts will see choristers perform these works in new mediums, including video, art, and film, in addition to live performances. 

AloneTogether comprises spoken word, poetry, sculpture, video art, music, and film and features 500 YPC choristers, 15 composers and emerging songwriters, seven poets, three choreographers, and two filmmakers. Filmmaker Ansley Sawyer brings the choristers’ stories to life through film, with newly commissioned works by composers Samuel Adler, Derek Bermel, Thomas Cabaniss, Paquito D’Rivera, Aneesa Folds, Michael Gordon, Michael Harrison, Ted Hearne, Yuka C. Honda, David Lang, Elizabeth Núñez, Francisco J. Núñez, Jim Papoulis, and Paola Prestini. Additional films by Francisco J. Núñez and a work by YPC’s Composer-In-Residence, Gordon Getty, round out the exhibition. The installation is the culmination of YPC’s newest commissioning initiative.

AloneTogether is a free exhibit and is open for viewing from January 7 through January 30, Friday – Sunday from 12pm – 6pm.  Private viewings throughout the week must be made via appointment. Contact Courtenay Casey at ccasey@ypc.org to schedule your special viewing of AloneTogether.
