Happy Hour Choral Concert: Young Professionals’ Choral Collective presents Sin & Tonic on Valentine’s Day
The Young Professionals’ Choral Collective of Cincinnati (YPCC), based in Over-the-Rhine, is made up of over 60 motivated young professionals (ages 21-40), who are excited to make great choral music, support local businesses, meet new people, and reach new audiences.
The directors, KellyAnn Nelson (Managing Artistic Director) & Christopher Eanes (Associate Director), are choral musicians & real-life partners who live in OTR. The 60+ singers live and work throughout the Greater Cincinnati area. For their first concert, 46 singers will perform at Below Zero Lounge (1122 Walnut Street in Over-the-Rhine) where the choir has been rehearsing and socializing for the last two months.
Sin & Tonic will be presented on Valentine’s Day. Audience members will listen with martinis in hand to quality choral music that explores all aspects of love. The doors (and the bar) will be open from 6-10pm, and the performance will take place from 6:45 – 7:30pm. Audience members are invited to start their Valentine’s Day evening with bawdy English madrigals, sassy French chansons, gorgeous vocal jazz arrangements and soaring American spirituals…or to make a whole night of it!
Space is limited. Free reservations (donations accepted) can be made at www.sinandtonic.eventbrite.com
YPCC rehearses on Tuesday nights in unique venues in OTR. For this concert cycle, they have had the pleasure of singing at Below Zero Lounge. After each rehearsal, YPCC singers socialize at various OTR locations such as A Tavola Pizza, Senate Pub, Lavomatic Bistro, Below Zero Lounge, Japp’s Cocktails, and Know Theatre. YPCC strives to connect motivated young professionals to this great city through great music, great food, great friends, and great relationships with local businesses. The OTR Gateway Merchants Group and YPCC have formed a great connection.
YPCC will continue to engage performers and audiences who live, work, and socialize downtown and are looking for connections to this great city, as well connecting young, hip audiences to Cincinnati’s great history of choral music performance, by presenting quality choral music in unique, informative, and fun ways. Their next concert will feature world choral music paired with wine tastings…In Vino Veritas. In July 2012, YPCC will compete in the World Choir Games as a showcase of the young professional talent in the city of Cincinnati.
