Ad Council's Award Dinner

Last week, YPC performed at the Ad Council's 56th Annual Public Service Award Dinner.

It was an honor to be invited to perform at this prestigious event at the beautiful Waldorf Astoria. The choristers put on a wonderful sho
w to kick off the evening. The ballroom was huge and many people were still taking their seats at the top of the show when YPC took the stage, but the chorus sung their hearts out and had the rapt attention of the honoree for the night, Muhtar Kent, the Chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company.

Here is a picture of YPC rehearsing on the stage. Unfortunately the photos of the event itself were too dark but envision the chorus just like this but in their matching uniforms! They looked and sounded fantastic.

The host for the evening, Tina Fey, slipped right past the chorus waiting to go on stage which left more than a few of us giddy with excitement!

The Ad Council set up YPC in a beautiful conference room at the Waldorf and left us with quite a spread of food. Check it out below:

More Lord & Taylor Feedback!

"It was definitely one of the most interesting experiences in my life to perform, while practically engulfed by a rack of velvet dresses, singing soprano at a department store. The Lord & Taylor concert went very smoothly. I had never actually been in such a hulking store before, so I was a little distracted by my epic surroundings. After the performance, my family reaped the benefits of the discount coupon, and bought a fat songbird Christmas ornament in honor of the performance. The concert rocked! (in a chorus way)" - Clark, Intermezzo Chorus

Lord & Taylor Benefit Bash Day Chorister Feedback

"On Tuesday I performed at Lord & Taylor in NYC with the Intermezzo division. Being in this concert was great because I was in a big store, and I had a solo. We had everybody closely gathered around us and I liked the attention. It was nice that this was a fundraiser for my favorite chorus!" - Nicholas, Intermezzo Chorus

"Yesterday, performing at Lord & Taylor was quite fun. I especially like the cookies from Sarabeth's Kitchen. Wearing red scarves and singing Christmas carols made me feel joyful and grateful to be a part of YPC. Now that I feel so at home with my fellow chorus members and the kind crew I can't wait for the next concert. Thank you so much Amy, Michael and the rest of my friends at YPC." - Raechel, Intermezzo Chorus

Lord & Taylor

On Tuesday, YPC performed at Lord & Taylor's Benefit Bash Day. There were 5 performances throughout the day, including a Satellite School and YPC's Intermezzo, Cantare, and Concert Chorus divisions.

It was a tremendous success. Below, read some feedback we got from a participating chorister.

Stay tuned for photos and more chorister feedback coming soon!

"Yesterday I was performing at Lord & Taylor, and I had a lot of fun. It was very much unlike performing on a stage, mainly because there were clothes behind us, and also because our families and friends were within 7 feet in front of us. It was a lot of fun, and I hope that Intermezzo and Cantare can do somethimg like it again soon."

- Maud, Intermezzo Division
