YPC’s feature film premiere of “This Time Round” at the Big Apple Film Festival Screening showcased the culmination of their hard work and creativity. The film, directed by Francisco J. Núñez and Ansley Sawyer, captures the essence of the Covid-19 lockdown through the stories of young New Yorkers. The film features 15 illustrious composers who created short canons, choral songs, and rounds that could be easily sung over Zoom, reflecting the experiences and challenges faced by the youth during this time. Each story in the film represents themes of isolation, yearning, and joy, told through the perspectives of the young New Yorkers involved. It is a poignant and powerful production by the Young People’s Chorus of New York CityBack to This Time Round landing page
