Gala reflections from a graduating senior
And Crosstown M42 was so much fun. I love watching Robert Kapilow speak. He has so much energy and passion. I’m so lucky to be able to work with talented composers and perform pieces by people like Mr. Kapilow; it makes me really proud to be a member of YPC. His speech about the chorus was especially generous; I feel like I’m a part of something important and great.
It didn’t occur to me that this was my last Gala in YPC ever; I was too in-the-moment. However, I’m jealous of the Prelude and Intermezzo choristers who get to do ten more of them. YPC may have taken up the majority of my extracurricular life for the past decade (yes, it’s been a decade since I joined), but it’s shows like the Gala that remind me that YPC has given me some of the most incredible experiences and opportunities I will ever have.”
