YPC: A Six Word Memoir

< Back to News

Several members of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City staff recently attempted to write a story about YPC in six words—a six-word memoir.  The first six-word memoir was written by Ernest Hemingway when he was challenged to write a novel in so many words.  He wrote:  “For sale.  Baby shoes.  Never worn.”  Here are the memoirs the staff composed – and we’d love to hear yours, too!

Many voices. One vision. Potential realized.

Children’s joy can change the world.

YPC songs from souls and angels.

Every walk, place, face, all singing.

Yes, I believe I can fly.

One by one, sing a song.

Shaping young lives through new music.

YPC celebrates and develops children’s choruses.

Kids discovering the world through YPC.

From corner to stage, new life.

City kids singing together. Lives changed.
