In memory of Daniel Thompson

On Sunday, March 11, 2018, we lost one of our very dear chorus members and the president of our board, Daniel Thompson. Along with four others, Daniel was the victim of a tragic helicopter accident in New York City.

Daniel touched so many lives over his nearly ten years singing with us in the Young New Yorkers’ Chorus, while also helping to lead our organization since 2016. We will forever miss his smile, his leadership, his friendship and his mighty baritone voice.

To celebrate his life, the YNYC community invites you to join us in a memorial service honoring Daniel this Thursday, March 22 from 6-8 p.m. Additional details can be found below.

When: Thursday, March 22nd
Where: St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 346 West 20th Street, NY NY 10011
Time: 6-8pm Memorial, 8-9pm Post-Memorial gathering.
All attendees are invited to participate in a memory board. Please bring a letter to Daniel, written memory, or a photo with a remembrance on the back to share.

    Daniel was a good friend, and I will miss is kindness and humor. I know he loved the chorus, and I remember how impressed I was when he told me about his preparation, and the performance with you all at Carnegie Hall last year.
