Commonwealth Youthchoirs (CY) continues to find exciting new ways to bring choristers together virtually during the 2020 pandemic.
- CY is partnering on the new podcast CORONA CHOIR… what choral folks NEED to know.
- In August, Singers representing every state in the nation collaborated on a virtual performance of the National Anthem that opened the 2020 Democratic National Convention (DNC) which garnered world-wide attention. CY participated not as a partisan statement, but as a way to remind the country that singing brings us together.
- Next month, CY Singers will debut a video of Elton John’s “Philadelphia Freedom,” to open the 99th Annual Philadelphia Award. It is among the most prestigious awards conferred in, by and for the Philadelphia community.
- CY Singers are collaborating with famed gospel singer BeBe Winans on a remake of Luther Vandross’ hit “The Power of Love.” It will be a part of an evening of song that includes icon Patti LaBelle.
Commonwealth Youthchoirs’ mission is to transform the lives of young people through the power of making music together - one song at a time. Its family of programs include: Find Your Instrument!, Garden State Girlchoir, Keystone State Boychoir, New Jersey Boychoir, and Pennsylvania Girlchoir. As a nonprofit organization, it serves more than 800 children in the greater Philadelphia and South Jersey region between the ages of 6 and 18, half of whom are under-resourced.
