Young People’s Chorus of New York City™ will perform the world premiere of “Share the Joy” at The Gift of Sharing unveiling of Lord & Taylor’s 2010 holiday windows on Fifth Avenue today, November 15, and will be premiering the work simultaneously with more than 40 other choruses in Lord & Taylor stores across nine states.
Visit your local Lord & Taylor store today to hear a live performance to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season! Performances begin at approximately 5:30 pm.
“Share the Joy” was written especially for this event by Francisco J. Núñez and composer Jim Papoulis, with words inspired by YPC chorus members. In the spirit of the season, YPC invited almost 2,000 choristers to sing with them to demonstrate how the power of song can bring people of all kinds together through music.
Emmy and Tony Award-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth, currently starring in Broadway’s “Promises, Promises,” will join YPC and perform a song from her new album, A Lovely Way to Spend Christmas. YPC and Ms. Chenoweth will join the Fifth Avenue revelers in singing “Let it Snow” to close the program, and we hear that the forecast is calling for snow at Lord & Taylor’s flagship store today!
The performance will be streaming live on Lord & Taylor’s website beginning at 5:00 p.m. today. Each of the Lord & Taylor stores will also be taping their local chorus’ performance, and these will be added to Lord & Taylor’s website to be viewed throughout the holidays.
