We couldnt ask for better ambassadors to Europe than our Young Womens Chorus who embark this June on a concert tour to Slovenia, Austria and Hungary. Their tour send-off concert features the apt American hymn How Can I Keep from Singing? and sacred and secular music from all three European countries, with works by Haydn, Schubert, Kodaly, Jez and Gyöngyösi. In addition, expect lots of Americana, including folk music, jazz and traditional spirituals.|
The Young Women's Choral Projects of San Francisco transforms the lives of young women through exceptional artistry in choral performance, and brings the expressive power of their music to the community, the nation, and the world. Through YWCP, young women ages 7-18 from richly diverse socio-ethnic backgrounds find their voices as singers, artists and women in a nurturing environment that empowers them to achieve artistic and personal excellence. YWCP offers four levels of choral experience, each with its own curriculum and musical objectives. The Young Women's Chorus is YWCP's advanced level and has earned three national awards in its short 5-year history. All YWCP ensembles teach young women the joy of performing, and instill in each singer important life benefits such as confidence, focus, self-discipline, problem solving, responsibility and compassion.
