- The Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC), a multicultural youth chorus internationally renowned for its superb virtuosity and brilliant showmanship, was founded on a mission of diversity and artistic excellence in 1988.
- The YPC repertoire spans Renaissance and classical traditions through gospel, folk, pop, contemporary, and world music and has extended and invigorated the canon for young voices with well over 100 pieces of new music commissioned from many of today’s most distinguished composers.
- YPC harnesses the power of music to fulfill the potential of over 2,000 children from 8 to 18 musically, academically, and socially through its after-school, in-school, and community programs throughout the New York City area. Among YPC's many awards is America’s highest honor for youth programs, a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award.
- Recently nominated for two Grammy Awards, YPC was the first American chorus to win first prize in the history of the European Broadcasting Union’s Let the Peoples Sing choral competition, the first youth chorus to open Lincoln Center’s venerable Mostly Mozart Festival, and last season was named “Choir of the World.”
