The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) Youth Chorus was created in 1997 as a vehicle for showcasing the talents and abilities of NYCHA residents and members of the surrounding communities. The Youth Chorus is dedicated to excellence in its performances and has a long and distinguished list to its credit. Some of these include: the legendary Apollo Theater, Avery Fisher Hall and Disney’s Epcot Center, the Official Chorus at the New York City 2000 Millennium Celebration, Radio City Music Hall (with Sir Elton John) and the International World Harmony Run at the United Nations, Mayoral Interfaith and Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfasts, and celebrations for the World Champion New York Yankees at City Hall. More than just a group of singers, the NYCHA Youth Chorus has come to be known as the Good Will Ambassadors for the New York City Housing Authority, instilling a healthy sense of pride and accomplishment in each and every one of its members.
