Elizabeth Núñez is the Associate Artistic Director of the award-winning Young People’s Chorus of New York City. Each year 2,000 children benefit musically, academically, and socially through their participation in YPC’s after-school and in-school programs. Throughout the last year, she has been creative director for many of YPC’s virtual performances and videos which have been viewed by millions both online and national television.
Elizabeth is the director of the YPC School Choruses program and oversees YPC’s unique curriculum of music education and performance for over 1,400 children in more than 20 New York City schools. In response to the pandemic, Elizabeth led the YPC team in creating “Hello, Singers!” a pilot ten-episode video series that teaches music reading concepts and singing technique through an innovative online music curriculum which is expected to reach thousands of elementary school children in the NYC area and beyond.
Elizabeth is the Founding Artistic Director of the intergenerational SoHarmoniums Women’s Choir which was founded with just six members in 2006. Based in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, SoHarmoniums has today expanded to over 60 women, who perform to capacity audiences across the city.
