Digital Video and Marketing Intern

 

The Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC) is a multicultural youth chorus internationally renowned not only for its superb virtuosity and brilliant showmanship, but also as a model for an inclusive society that is being replicated globally. Founded 30 years ago by Francisco J. Núñez, this groundbreaking program harnesses the power of music to benefit children musically, academically, and socially. Over 1,700 children from ages 8 to 18 participate annually through its core after-school program, its in-school Satellite Program in 18 New York City public schools, and two thriving after-school Community Choruses in Washington Heights and at Goddard Riverside Community Center. Francisco Núñez was honored with a MacArthur Fellowship for creating a unique paradigm that integrates children from broad ethnic, cultural and economic strata to achieve artistic excellence. Among YPC’s many awards is the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award - America’s highest honor for youth programs. Its commitment to artistic excellence and diversity inspires frequent invitations for collaborations and performances from a global array of festivals, cultural institutions, and cities on four continents, and its commitment to education ensures that 100% of its graduates go on to college.
