The Young Womens Chorus sings music of protest, resistance and revolution from many eras and countries, including songs from the civil rights movement, anti-war protest songs, and music by composers and poets who resisted their unjust governments.|
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 5-18 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 five levels of musical 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.
