Image for Young People's Chorus of New York City Brings "Freshness" to Mostly Mozart Festival

Sep 06, 2017

In a recent New York Times profile of Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival, the author noted that, while past iterations of the festival have been “timidly conventional,” this year brought new ideas, including an “inspiring” performance from the Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC).

Contributing to a program entitled “The Singing Heart,” a “celebration of children as a source of wisdom and potential,” YPC sang folk songs and spirituals in between movements of Mozart’s “Haffner” Symphony. Throughout the evening, the singers were conducted by Louis Langrée, musical director of the Mostly Mozart Festival.
