In June 2015, Francisco J. Núñez conducted thousands of children from 29 schools in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut in the U.S. premiere of American Young Voices at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Now, just two years later, the event has become so admired that it is being presented not only in Newark, but also in Albany Boston, and Washington, D.C. from May 30 to June 2, 2017.
For two decades before coming to America, Young Voices inspired a love of music among young students through massive concerts in some of the biggest arenas in the U.K. and elsewhere.
Through his work as the artistic director and founder of the award-winning Young People’s Chorus of New York City, Mr. Núñez, the principal conductor of American Young Voices, knows the incredible impact of music on children’s lives – not only musically, but also academically and socially.
Through American Young Voices, children are invited to practice specially selected music in class with their teachers, as they prepare themselves to take part in these massive, fun-filled concerts. Backed by a full live band, Mr. Núñez leads thousands of singers at a time in experiences that are sure to be some of the most exciting and memorable events children could ever imagine.
