Hi, everyone!

Do you live on the eastern seaboard and love beautifully-sung choral music? Have you been saying for years that you'd love to hear me sing, but wish you lived closer, AND you live in the Philly or DC area?

Wait no more! The Young New Yorkers' Chorus is singing in both those cities! Philly on March 6th and DC on March 7th!

The Philadelphia concert is PAY WHAT YOU WISH. The DC concert is a choral festival with a couple of other groups (including the highly-regarded 18th Street Singers) and costs $15.

The deets!

The Young New Yorkers' Chorus ON TOUR

In Philadelphia, PA
Friday, March 7, 2014; 8pm
Church of the Holy Trinity Rittenhouse Square
1904 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103
Admission: Pay what you wish!

In Washington, DC
Saturday, March 8, 2014; 8pm
Church of the Ascension and Saint Agnes
1215 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20005
Admission: $15
(I assume one can pay in advance, but I haven't got the website for that yet)

Our repertoire this time around includes settings of Seven Shaker Songs, Straheli's "How Can I Keep from Singing?", some William Byrd, and two Christmas-y pieces by past winners of our Competition for Young Composers. Oh, and "Shenandoah." Because we're cheesy traditional like that. :-P There's also a stunning piece by Eriks Esenvalds called "Stars," which breaks most of the singers' hearts open. *nods* And maybe some other stuff. That's what I remember off the top of my head.

Doesn't that sound like fun?

So yes, if you're in either area, please consider coming! It's always funner to sing when I know some folks in the audience, and anyway, we've done a crap job publicizing so far (partly because one of the venue contracts wasn't signed until last week). So I'd LOVE TO HAVE AN AUDIENCE.

And we really do sing very prettily. Even with so many more men than women!

(The men are pretty, too, if you're into that sort of thing. But most of them are gay. And the women are pretty. But most of them are straight. So... Unavailable eye-candy! And me!)
