In June, the Young People's Chorus of New York City (YPC) Cantare Division, directed by Elizabeth Núñez, embarked on a tour to Canada, performing an astounding 18 concerts in 8 days. The Chorus was invited to participate and compete in Canada's International Choral Kathaumixw.
The Young People's Chorus competed in three categories: Contemporary Music, Children's Choirs and Folk and Cultural Traditions. Before, after, and in between these competitions, the Chorus performed in 18 concerts, including the Gala Opening, Awards Ceremony and Closing Gala.
When not performing in one of their 18 concerts, the YPC explored downtown Vancouver. They were even invited to a BBQ on the Powell River Bay by the Mayor. On their last day in Canada, the Chorus sailed around the area, from Saltery Bay to Earls Cove, to Langdale Ferry Terminal to Horseshoe Bay.
