Young People’s Chorus of New York City (YPC) has announced the extension of its immersive, mixed-media installation, “Alone Together,” through January 2022.

YPC has held the exhibit at and in the High Line Nine gallery in New York’s Chelsea Art District since November 2021.

The exhibit is an exploration of the pandemic’s social and emotional impact on young adults, with 500 YPC choristers performing works by artists across disciplines. In total, 15 composers and songwriters, seven poets, three choreographers, and two filmmakers bring the choristers’ stories to life through film. Artistic director and founder of YPC Francisco J. Núñez conceptualized and curated the installation.

“‘AloneTogether’ is a dynamic multi-media project that will give viewers a powerful and intimate portrayal of the range of emotions YPC choristers faced over the past year and a half, from fear and loneliness to hope and joy,” Núñez said in a press statement. “Art has given our youth a powerful vehicle through which they can process these complicated emotions and share them with the world. This is the power and beauty of art and what we do at YPC.”

“Alone Together” is free to the public Fridays-Sundays through January from 12 pm-6 pm and by appointment during the week.
