Francisco J. Núñez founds the Children’s Aid Society Choir, which later becomes an independent organization, the Young People’s Chorus of New York City
Francisco J. Núñez founds a choir at the Children’s Aid Society to inspire the hopes and dreams of urban children of all backgrounds and to improve their lives through a program of musical excellence.
Soon after he graduated from New York University, Francisco took a job with the Children’s Aid Society caring for children after school. He designed a music program for them and arranged for buses to bring together children from five other Children’s Aid Society locations in the city. He wanted to give children not only the opportunity to make music together, but at the same time to learn about and make friends with children from different neighborhoods, cultures, and religions through the power of music.
