Feb 03, 2015

The Young People's Chorus of New York City (YPC) has advanced to the final round of the 2015 Euroradio Choral Competition, after having been selected by American Public Media (APM) as the only American chorus to represent the United States in this international choral competition.

On Sunday, October 11, the Young People's Chorus of New York City, conducted by its artistic director Francisco J. Núñez, will compete live in Munich, Germany, against the two other finalists in the Children and Youth category: the Aarhus Pigekor (Aarhus Girls' Choir) from Denmark and the Romanian Radio Children's Choir. 
 
Brian Newhouse, managing director of Classical APM said, "YPC represented America, and our nation couldn't have had a stronger or more joyful contestant in the competition. Congratulations to the entire YPC community." 
 
The competition is held every two years under the auspices of the European Broadcasting Union, the largest community of public service media organizations in the world with 73 members in 56 countries.
