YPC Returns Home from California Summer Tour with
Five Gold Medals and Admiration from the International Choral Community
YPC Celebrates Golden Gate Success
Two divisions of the Young People's Chorus of New York City -Cantare and Chorale- returned home this summer from an extraordinary California tour, where they combined to win five gold medals at Oakland's Golden Gate International Choral Competition and Festival. Based on their scores, YPC was awarded 3 First-Place gold medals in the Youth Historical, Gospel, and Contemporary categories and 2 Second-Place gold medals in the Youth Folk and Children's Folk categories.The YPC choristers gave their all in rehearsals and performances with YPC Artistic Director/Founder Francisco J. Núñez and Associate Conductor Elizabeth Núñez. They also had the extraordinary opportunity to meet, sing, and learn about other choristers from the U.S., Canada, Estonia, Austria, China, Poland, Indonesia, and Finland, who all fell in love with the happy, friendly, funny, and energetic singers from New York City.
From Oakland, YPC's Chorale moved on to Napa for two "remarkable" (Napa Valley Register) concerts in YPC's Festival del Sole debut. (Click here for the full review.)
