New Multimedia Art Installation Focusing on Mental Health Presented by Young People’s Chorus of New York City (May 5 -May 14)

May 5, 2023 - May 14, 2023

Free

In New York City where mental health issues among young people are on the rise, a new multimedia art installation from the Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC) offers healing and hope.

TogetherAgain is a collection of music, poetry, voice, photography, film, sculpture and more, presented in three chapters: The Canon’s Project, a film featuring commissions from 15 of today’s renowned composers – including Paquito D’Rivera, Aneesa Folds, David Lang and Paola Prestini – and the voices of nearly 600 choristers who recorded themselves during the height of the COVID-19 lockdown; Poetry in Sculpture, seven poems, written by choristers, based on balance, compassion and isolation and presented on pipe sculptures; and This Place Meant, 100 verbal portraits of choristers’ stories presented in vessels to create a powerful sound installation.

Offering a 360-degree view of the interior world of young people in our time, the installation debuts on Friday, May 5 and runs through Sunday, May 14 at 147 West 29th Street in Manhattan’s Chelsea District. It is free and open to the public.

In addition to the installation, a series of onsite musical performances and talks discussing the healing power of art will soon be announced.
