In The Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Teens Speak Up By Singing Out : Deceptive Cadence : NPR

A wonderful example of young adults learning and finding their voices. And a lesson in the power of the arts to transcend the usual barriers to connection: wealth, colour, location… And a story of vision and passion. But, of course, the barriers are enormous.

This is an example of what can be achieved and it is beautiful.

The group is celebrating its 25th anniversary by commissioning new pieces of contemporary classical music — and pushing the composers who write for the ensemble to broaden their own points of view.
