Young People’s Chorus of New York City Celebrates 30th Anniversary Spring Concert at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine
The Spring Concert program spotlighted every YPC chorus member and included the world premiere of a new work – No One is an Island – commissioned for this occasion by composer Nils Vigeland, who attended with his family and remarked at, “What a great night” it was for YPC.
The Spring Concert closed traditionally by introducing each YPC graduate in the Class of 2018. These graduates are continuing another YPC tradition, established with YPC’s first graduation ceremony in 1996. Every one of this year’s 24 graduates will be attending college this fall.
A very special and heart-felt thank-you to each and every one of the volunteers, conductors, accompanists, staff members, and ambassadors, not to mention Jacquie Bird and Kerry Allen, who were so integral to helping make Saturday’s concert such a resounding success.
