Current Season

Our city goes by many names – The Big Apple, The City that Never Sleeps, Gotham. The Young New Yorkers’ Chorus knows it by another name – home. Join us for our 2019-2020 season, Metropolis, as YNYC explores every corner of the great city of New York through song. We’ll be singing works composed in each of the five boroughs, in each of the five boroughs, while also celebrating the dynamic musical communities that have been built here throughout the years.
