Dear YPC National community,

We are so sorry to share the sad news that as the Covid-19 pandemic continues, we are unable to move forward with plans for our second annual YPC National Choral Lab and Studio at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee this coming July.

After our amazing inaugural YPC National events in July 2019, we have so been looking forward to bringing together young people and conductors from all over the country once again for another memorable experience this year. We are determined to plan an incredible reunion in 2021, and we invite you to stay tuned for those dates and “early-bird” pre-registration to be announced soon!

Until then, we hope you stay safe, and we can’t wait to make music with you again soon.

Concinamus comes from the Latin verb Concino, which means:  to celebrate in song, to agree, to sing together.

In 2019, we inaugurated YPC Concinamus, a national ensemble consisting of members of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City and singers from around the country. YPC Concinamus will return in 2020 to the YPC National Choral Lab concluding concert on Monday, July 30.
