Treble Chorus Clinician – Elizabeth Núñez
Elizabeth Núñez is the Associate Artistic Director of the award-winning Young People’s Chorus of New York City, as well as a conductor, choral clinician, soloist, and the founding artistic director of the SoHarmoniums Women’s Choir. At YPC, an organization founded over 30 years ago on a mission of diversity and artistic excellence, she directs children ranging in age from 8 to 18, in rehearsals, performances, and tours in the U.S. and abroad. Each year 2,000 children benefit musically, academically, and socially through their participation in YPC’s after-school and in-school programs.
Since joining YPC in 2004, Elizabeth has conducted the choristers in New York City’s most prestigious venues, from Carnegie Hall and the Apollo Theater to the Metropolitan Museum, as well as on national television, including appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America, and The Today Show. She has conducted YPC in debuts in Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart and White Light Festivals. In international choral competitions, she has led the singers to first-place wins at the Cantonigròs International Music Festival in Spain and the Choral Kathaumixw Festival in British Columbia, where the choristers also won the overall title of “Choir of the World.” Elizabeth has also prepared YPC for performances of Bernstein’s Mass at Mostly Mozart and for the world premiere performances of Julia Wolfe’s unanimously acclaimed multimedia work Fire in My Mouth with the New York Philharmonic, the live Decca Gold recording of which was nominated for two Grammy Awards.
She is also the director of the YPC School Choruses program, overseeing and designing YPC’s unique curriculum of music education and performance for over 1,200 children in 20 New York City schools. Beyond music, Elizabeth created WIT: Women Inspiring Tomorrow, a thriving mentoring program that brings YPC’s high school girls together with its alumnae and accomplished women across varying professions.
As the founding artistic director of SoHarmoniums, an intergenerational women’s community chorus based in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, she has seen the chorus grow from six women to over 60, who regularly give capacity performances in major venues across the city.
A sought-after choral clinician as well, Elizabeth is invited by choral organizations nationwide to conduct performances and workshops. She also serves on the board of Chorus America. Elizabeth received a Master of Music Education with Kodály Certification, from the University of Oklahoma and a Bachelor of Music Education from Lee University, where she was awarded the 2017 School of Music’s Distinguished Alumnus Award for her commitment to “changing the lives of America’s youth.”
