“My family has been a part of the BNYC for 23 of its glorious 25 years! I believe we hold the record. My sister Annie began early in its formation and continued into high school. My brother Mike started in elementary school and continued through middle school until his voice got too low to participate. I myself joined in third grade and have been a member for 10 years, this being my last, as a graduating senior. Personally, my involvement in BNYC has grown my love of beautiful music even further than I thought possible. It has introduced me to music from around the world and has helped me appreciate other cultures and traditions. I’ve grown up singing and that is a gift I most appreciate.”
