Empowering youth from East and West Jerusalem
The YMCA Jerusalem Youth Chorus empowers young singers to become leaders for peace in their communities by providing a space where they can engage one another in musical and verbal dialogue. Through this combination of high level music-making and interpersonal engagement, the YMCA Jerusalem Youth Chorus seeks to create a life-changing experience for its members. The results shine onstage and have inspired audiences in Jerusalem and world-over since our founding in 2012.
