"...PROVIDING CHILDREN OF ALL ETHNIC, RELIGIOUS, AND ECONOMIC BACKGROUNDS WITH A SAFE HAVEN FOR PERSONAL AND ARTISTIC GROWTH."  - FRANCISCO  NÚÑEZ

Francisco  Núñez, whose awards and recognitions include: Musical America’s 2018 Educator of the Year Award,  MacArthur Fellow, ASCAP Victor Herbert Award, New York Choral Society’s Choral Excellence Award, and Bang on a Can’s Visionary Award, is the Founder and Conductor of Young People's Chorus of New York City.

“Francisco J. Núñez has been raising the bar [for children’s choruses] over the last decade by commissioning a steady stream of works from composers who usually write for adults and weaving them into programs that include choral classics, spirituals, theater songs and pop arrangements.” — The New York Times 

About the Series:  Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, in collaboration with Shandelee Music Festival, is pleased to announce the third annual return of PLAY: The Classics in the magnificent Event Gallery at Bethel Woods. The goal of this series is to encourage and foster young talented emerging artists, help to build and cultivate a younger audience and increase attendance of all ages. Each concert is preceded by an enjoyable introduction to the music being performed, and followed by a specialty dessert reception where you will have the opportunity to relax, see friends and meet new acquaintances.

In addition to support from Bethel Woods Center for the Arts and the Shandelee Music Festival, P.L.A.Y. the Classics is funded in part by a gift from the Guenther Family and by a grant from the Rea Charitable Trust.
