The energy is palpable, the music is incredible, the performances are like no other.

On May 9th, 2022, we’re not just raising our voices in song, we’re raising hope, raising spirits, and raising the bar for the future. Our first live gala in two years, Raising Voices in the Key of Love, is an evening you will never forget!

At the magnificent Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, the young artists of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, led by Founder and Artistic Director Francisco J. Núñez, and accompanied by a 28-piece orchestra and some very special guests, will electrify and inspire with world-class, fully-choreographed performances of everything from Mozart to Motown.

Raise your Voice & Join Us!

When you join us, you too will have an opportunity like no other. To elevate the dreams of over 2,000 children from every borough and background in NYC. To amplify the voices and ideas of the future. And to give our young people the support they need to succeed on the paths they are already charging down, the paths that will change our communities—and our world—for the better.

You won’t want to miss it!
