We join Brooklyn Youth Chorus for their latest project:

Silent Voices, harnesses the power of young people to be instruments of change, giving voice to those who have been silenced or marginalized by social, cultural or religious circumstances. The Chorus has commissioned a diverse group of innovative artists to interpret rich historical narratives and personal stories and create music that explores race and identity, inequity and social disparity—music that matters. Brooklyn Youth Chorus’ Founding Artistic Director, Dianne Berkun Menaker, conceived of the project and is co-curating it with director Kristin Marting.

Brooklyn Youth Chorus presents Silent Voices in conjunction with its year-long artist residency with WQXR, New York.
This concert explores gender, sexuality and age, with commissioned works by Ellen Reid, Caroline Shaw, Nico Muhly, Kamala Sankaram, Ellis Ludwig-Leone and Max Posner, and Jeff Beal.
