        The Young People's Chorus of New York City

        The Young People's Chorus was founded by conductor Francisco Nuñez to celebrate the diversity and musical richness of his hometown, New York City. In this performance video from From the Top at Carnegie Hall, listen to a performance of Panta Rhei (Greek for "all things are in flux") by another New Yorker, composer Jim Papoulis. Many of the musical elements—a driving rhythm, syncopation, atonality, and surprising percussion—contribute to the sense of change and movement.

        You can see the full episode and a more complete lesson plan at the From the Top at Carnegie Hall Web site.
