[Cleveland Daily Banner] Young People’s Chorus of New York City to perform at Lee
Dr. Paul Conn, who with his wife, Darlia, selects all artists for this series, said: “Our audience is going to love these youngsters and their music. They will provide an evening of music we will be talking about for years. It’s hard for a local group to make an impact in a city like New York, where the audiences hear so much memorable music, but these kids have made a name for themselves, and after they have been on the Pangle Hall stage, everyone in Cleveland will understand why. It will be a night to remember!”
YPC’s repertoire ranges from Renaissance and classical traditions to gospel, folk, pop, contemporary, and world music. YPC has performed on four continents, has won over a dozen gold medals in international choral competitions, and has invigorated the repertoire for young voices by commissioning and premiering over 100 compositions from today’s most distinguished composers.
YPC is a recipient of the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award, America’s highest honor for youth programs.
The chorus has impacted thousands of children by providing a vocal music education, ensuring that 100 percent of YPC alumni attend college, and giving chorus members and those connected to them a path to success.
