In New York City where mental health issues among young people are on the rise, a new multimedia art installation from the Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC) offers healing and hope.

TogetherAgain is a collection of music, poetry, voice, photography, film, sculpture and more, presented in three chapters: The Canon’s Project, a film featuring commissions from 15 of today’s renowned composers - including Paquito D’Rivera, Aneesa Folds, David Lang and Paola Prestini - and the voices of nearly 600 choristers who recorded themselves during the height of the COVID-19 lockdown; Poetry in Sculpture, seven poems, written by choristers, based on balance, compassion and isolation and presented on pipe sculptures; and This Place Meant, 100 verbal portraits of choristers’ stories presented in vessels to create a powerful sound installation.

Offering a 360-degree view of the interior world of young people in our time, the installation debuts on Friday, May 15 at 147 West 29th Street in Manhattan’s Chelsea District. It is free and open to the public.

In addition to the installation, a series of onsite musical performances and talks discussing the healing power of art will soon be announced.
