Mission and Programs
Since its founding in 1988, thousands of children have been touched by YPC’s mission. YPC provides children of diverse backgrounds with a unique program of music education and choral performance that seeks to fulfill each child’s potential, while creating a model of excellence and harmony that enriches our community. YPC accomplishes this mission through its core After-School Chorus, its Satellite Schools Program in New York City public schools, and its community chorus in Washington Heights. YPC expands the repertoire for youth chorus by commissioning outstanding composers and premiering their work, and it supports choristers’ personal and academic development through the College Bound Program. As its reputation continues to grow, YPC is invited with increasing frequency to represent the United States at festivals and choral summits throughout the world, where YPC is in demand not only because of its artistic excellence but also as a model of multiculturalism.
