The Young People’s Chorus of New York City and Artistic Director/Founder Francisco J. Núñez continue to expand and invigorate the repertoire for children’s chorus with the world premieres of six new compositions as part of Transient Glory, YPC’s groundbreaking new music commissioning series. To date YPC has commissioned and premiered over 100 compositions from many of the most distinguished composers of our time—most of whom had never before written for young voices. The majority of these compositions have been commissioned through Transient Glory, which continues to play a dynamic role in the ever-evolving music of the 21st century.
