ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
The FFRCC YOUTH CHORUS consists of youth ages 8-18 from all areas of New York City. The students learn proper vocalization via Italian bel canto (beautiful singing) vocal technique -- the oldest and most advanced technique for the proper development of the human voice, with the least effort and maximum sonority. The students sing in different languages and work through great classical compositions from around the world.
FRANK MATHIS, baritone was a soloist in the Roland Hayes Life of Christ song cycle performed at Carnegie Hall in 2016. He studied with Antonella Banaudi, among others. He has directed choruses and voice training in US and Germany. He has been a leading part of a program to expose public school children in NYC, Bronx, Harlem and Brooklyn to classical music and choral singing, and will direct the Foundation's summer music-science program.
JONATHAN DePERI, organ & piano, is the Honorary Assistant Organist at St. John’s in the Village and had studied piano at the Manhattan School of Music before transferring to Columbia University.
