Young People’s Chorus of New York City and Affiliate Thurnauer School of Music to Premiere ‘We Came to America’ Celebrating the American Experience, January 20

January 20 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

$25 – $95

Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC) presents the world premiere of “We Came to America,” an inspirational composition celebrating the American experience by Rob Kapilow. YPC will be joined by YPC @ Thurnauer, Ember Choral Arts, and the New Jersey Symphony.

This project, inspired by Faith Ringgold’s book “We Came to America,” aims to promote inclusivity and diversity through the transformative power of music. Proceeds from the performances will support the Thurnauer School of Music’s major, annual fundraising event of the year, and will go toward the school’s mission to make high-quality music education available to all who wish to study music. Support for this project will expand the school’s outreach in elementary schools, middle schools and high schools to inspire a nationwide conversation about the value and place of immigrants in the country’s past, present, and future.
