The Young People’s Chorus of New York City, an award-winning ensemble led by Francisco J. Núñez, returns to Festival Napa Valley for a celebratory and uniquely American concert. The evening includes the world premiere of Polaris by Nia Imani Franklin, an anthem that pays tribute to the making of Juneteenth a national holiday, and an arrangement of Gordon Getty’s celebrated choral work, Young America. Renowned baritone Lester Lynch reunites with the chorus for a selection of hymns and spirituals. Also performing are the winners of this year’s Manetti Shrem Opera Prize: soprano Mikayla Sager and tenor Mario Chang.
