The Young Professionals’ Choral Collective of Cincinnati (YPCC) believes in creating connections through choral music. The choir was formed at Below Zero Lounge in OTR in November 2011 and is now made up of a roster with over 500 volunteer singers who live and work throughout greater Cincinnati, ranging in age from 21 – 45. Under the direction of Artistic Director KellyAnn Nelson, YPCC has quickly found a niche in the vibrant arts community of downtown Cincinnati. Each unique concert has sold out, and singers and audiences alike connect in unique, high-quality concert presentations like “In Vino Veritas” (South African & Italian choral music paired with wines from the same countries – presented in collaboration with 1215 Wine Bar & Coffee Lab), “Sin & Tonic” (a Valentine’s Day happy hour concert featuring 17th & 18th century bawdy madrigals paired with martinis at Below Zero Lounge), and “Black & Blues” (a gala event featuring dinner, dancing with the Cincy Brass, opera choruses & vocal jazz). The ensemble brings young, energetic people together in 6-week concert cycle commitments to create quality choral music and connect in a low-pressure, social environment. YPCC also creates connections to local businesses and arts organizations through post-rehearsal dinners, unique concert collaborations and shared resources with stellar Cincinnati arts organizations.
