Festival Napa Valley and Kaiser Permanente Present Young People’s Chorus of New York City’s Immersive, Mixed-Media Art Exhibition, AloneTogether (July 8 – August 31; CIA at Copia in Napa)
July 8, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Festival Napa Valley is partnering with Kaiser Permanente to present the West Coast Premiere of AloneTogether, a powerful multimedia art installation created during the pandemic by Francisco J. Núñez, Artistic Director and Founder of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City. Premiered at the High Line Nine Gallery in New York in late 2021, AloneTogether is a journey into the subconscious minds of children and teens during a time of global turmoil and transformation, examining life in lockdown through the eyes of children.
AloneTogether comprises spoken word, poetry, sculpture, video art, music, and film and features 500 YPC choristers, 15 composers and songwriters, seven poets, three choreographers, and two filmmakers. Ansley Sawyer brings the choristers’ stories to life through film, set to commissioned works by composers Samuel Adler, Derek Bermel, Thomas Cabaniss, Paquito D’Rivera, Aneesa Folds, Michael Gordon, Michael Harrison, Ted Hearne, Yuka C. Honda, David Lang, Elizabeth Núñez, Francisco J. Núñez, Jim Papoulis, and Paola Prestini. Additional films by Francisco J. Núñez and a work by YPC’s Composer-in-Residence, Gordon Getty, round out the exhibition. The installation is the culmination of YPC’s newest commissioning initiative.
The Young People’s Chorus of New York City will also perform at three live concerts during Festival Napa Valley – a Novack Concert for Kids on July 14, a mainstage concert on July 16, and the Arts for All Gala on July 17.
