1,000 VOICES Singing at the 2012 Satellite Schools Concert

Elizabeth Núñez, Director of Satellite Schools Program
Sophia Miller, Conductor
“It’s always amazing to see all of the YPC Satellite Schools concert children come together at this event each spring.  Although the children come from all over the city and have never met one another, they connect through a common love of singing and share in the celebration of the hard work they have all done throughout the year in their schools.  Bravo to each school!”
- Sophia Miller,  Conductor

Satellite Schools Concert!

Sheldon Ogbourne, Conductor

“The most moving thing to me about the concert was seeing the excitement and energy of all the choristers showing all the work they have done this year. For many of them it was their first time performing on a professional stage. After all of our time together, it made me so proud to see the joy in the beautiful music they made.”
 - Sheldon Ogbourne, Conductor

“The abundance of youthful energy and excited singing spirits was inspiring. I have never before seen Kaufmann Concert Hall so full of joy and enthusiasm and am proud of each and every participant. Congratulations to all of the choristers, parents, and schools, brilliant concert!”
