About YPCC
The Young Professionals Choral Collective of Cincinnati (YPCC) believes in creating connections through choral music. YPCC was formed in Cincinnati in November 2011 and has a roster of over 1200 volunteer singers ranging in age from 21 - 45 who live and work throughout Greater Cincinnati.  Singers of all experience levels participate in accessible, non-auditioned, 8-week concert cycles with multiple entry points throughout the year; each cycle averages between 150-200 singers. YPCC attracts an elusive age demographic in the arts, presenting high-quality and collaborative performances to large audiences comprised of our arts partners, colleagues, parents, grandparents, friends, and various community members from the greater Cincinnati tri-state area. YPCC fosters an inclusive environment that celebrates the uniqueness and diversity of its members. 

YPCC’s programming occurs in spaces that highlight the uniqueness of the city’s urban core. The organization, with support from local funding organizations such as ArtsWave Cincinnati, the Ohio Arts Council, and the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce, is a key anchor for attracting and retaining young professional talent, contracting over 50 gigs a year in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. YPCC maintains a growing number of important artistic partnerships, including projects with The Cincinnati Opera, The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, Madcap Puppet Theater, the Classical Roots choir from the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Elementz, and the Contemporary Arts Center. YPCC is receiving national attention for this unique model, which has already inspired one sister choir in another city.

Our singers enjoy performing a wide variety of high-quality music reflecting a spectrum of musical genres varying from classical and contemporary works to Broadway arrangements to gospel and spiritual pieces. Concerts predominantly feature a capella pieces and ensembles of varying sizes and instrumentation.

YPCC features an additional “On Call” group that rehearses every other month in casual community spaces including breweries or bars in order to prepare standard on-going repertoire for singers that may be contracted through the organization by local partners for small private events, such as cocktail parties, art galas/showcases, weddings, etc. YPCC also features an auditioned Chamber Choir led by an Associate Director.

Through the powerful act of singing together, YPCC creates a high quality, joyful, and approachable artistic community of passionate young professionals.
