In 2012, the Young People’s Chorus of New York City and Artistic Director/Founder Francisco J. Núñez established YPC’s first Community Chorus Program in Washington Heights to provide more children with the opportunity to participate in YPC’s award-winning choral program.
In 2015, YPC established its second community chorus at the Goddard Riverside Community Center on the Upper West Side.
Children in YPC community choruses attend after school rehearsals led by YPC-trained conductors and professional accompanists. Each chorus performs concerts throughout the year within their community and throughout New York City. Rehearsals are hosted by YPC Community Partners.
