Young Singers of the Palm Beaches (YSPB) came back live in concert to rave reviews and rounds of applause in December 2021 at their winter concert, “There Will Be Light.” Now all 250 singers invite everyone to join them as they continue spreading uplifting messages at their spring concert “We’ll Rise Above.”
Shawn Berry, Young Singers’ Artistic Director/Conductor, explains the important meaning behind the title of the concert: “For the last two years, singers and choirs around the world have been silenced due to the pandemic. But now, singing is being heard, it is “rising above” the darkness and silence that permeated our lives… we are empowered by songs of resiliency, imagination, and hope.”
“We’ll Rise Above” will be a celebration of over 250 singers, ages 7 to 18, full of bright enthusiasm, joy, and most of all hope.
The concert will feature songs about pure fun; daydreams, imagination, fireflies, and summer nights, to one that sweetly unifies the word “peace” in 19 different languages, to heart-tugging expressions of empathy and the universal message of perseverance, as well as songs of encouragement, empowerment and the truth that comes from being who you truly are.
As we look to the future, the singers of YSPB themselves are the future. Their voices will build the roads that lead into our tomorrows and the audience will leave this concert with positivity knowing that, as the title song says, “We'll rise above, seize the highest dream. We'll lift our heads up high, move the sky, embrace our destiny!”
YSPB hopes that you will bring your family to their concert on Saturday, May 28th. It will be on the main stage of the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $15 to $60 and can be purchased from the Kravis directly, either in person at the box office, by calling 561-832-7469 or online at Kravis.org.
