Since 1988, the Young People's Chorus of New York City (YPC) has had a significant impact on thousands of children and their communities by:
- Providing over 1,000 children each year from a diverse spectrum of cultural and economic backgrounds with innovative vocal music education.
- Offering YPC's College Bound Program, ensuring 100 percent of YPC graduates attend college.
- Redefining what can be expected from young voices in the vocal music field by raising the level of artistry and performance for children.
- Expanding and invigorating today's repertoire for children's choruses, with over 100 commissions and premieres by some of the world's most distinguished composers, many of whom had not previously written for a youth chorus.
- Reaching and inspiring millions of listeners annually through performances at national and international concert halls, radio, and TV programs, recordings, and more.
- Giving choristers the chance to travel across the U.S. and world for concerts and competitions and collaborate with children and audiences from different cultures.
