YPC Receives Nation’s Highest Award for Youth Programs


First Lady Michelle Obama presents Francisco J. Núñez and YPC chorister Stephan Douglas Allen with a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award in the East Room of the White House. The ceremony, which announced the recipients of the country’s highest honor for youth programs, concludes with YPC performing Billy Strayhorn’s “Take the A Train.”  The First Lady is so impressed by YPC’s performance, she immediately invites them to return to the White House to sing at its holiday celebrations.
