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. Nez and Associate Conductor Elizabeth Nez. 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.
