The Corona Youth Music Project (or Núcleo Corona) kicks off its Fifth Anniversary celebration with their Spring Showcase Concert that will gather over 100 young musicians at the Queens Museum.

The concert features Núcleo Corona’s 4 main ensembles: the Corona Children’s Chorus, the Corona Children’s Orchestra, the Corona Youth Orchestra and the “No Frontiers” Children’s Orchestra, presenting music by Handel, Sibelius, Rimsky-Korsakov and Offenbach.

Special guests include the Quintet of The Americas performing Colombian composer Harold Gutierrez‘ “Dreamers’ March” together with the Corona Children’s Orchestra. This piece was commissioned by the Quintet of The Americas for the children of Corona through a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
