Young People's Chorus of NYC: 4/25 concert w. Missy Mazzoli & Victoire
Date: April 23, 2014
Location: New York, USA
Transient Glory, the Young People's Chorus of New York City's groundbreaking, 21st-century commissioning series of choral music for young people, returns with a Composer Spotlight on Missy Mazzoli on Friday, April 25, at 8 p.m. at the 92nd Street Y. Conducted by YPC Artistic Director and Founder Francisco J. Núñez, the evening focuses on a musical world of Missy Mazzoli. It encompasses an entire evening of premieres of specially selected music from Missy's acclaimed collection of genre-bending works interpreted, set, and adapted for the first time for an ensemble of young voices and Victoire, Missy's all-female band. It also includes the world premiere of a new YPC Transient Glory commission, New New York Songs.
For this Transient Glory composer spotlight, YPC brings back WNYC's John Schaefer to host, and in a new YPC collaboration, Mark DeChiazza will stage the concert to draw the audience into this exciting universe of sounds that burst with the vitality, diversity, and youthful optimism of New York City, a crossroads where artists gravitate and transform the course of music and life.
This unusual mix of voices singing new interpretations of Missy Mazzoli's eclectic and deeply felt indie classical works provoke the questions: What is today's classical music? Whom is it for? Where is it going? Why are young people feeling connected to it?
All tickets are $15 and are available at the 92nd Street Y box office (92nd Street and Lexington Avenue), by calling 212-415-5500, or
