It all begins with a love of singing. It continues with resilience, love, and hope for the future.

Since 1992, Dianne Berkun Menaker and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus have done so much. Over the course of our history, we have:


  • Given over $1,000,000 in scholarships & financial aid
  • Served more than 12,000 exceptional young singers
  • Commissioned more than 120 pieces of new music
  • Sent nearly 100% of graduates on to a 4-year college


Now, 28 years later, we find ourselves at a crossroads, facing an unprecedented challenge. You can help.

The #28for28 campaign has a simple premise. We’re asking you – all of you – to join together in support of our core mission: to nurture and develop the young singers of New York City through the highest quality music education and the creation of new works.

If every person in our community gives $28 in support of our 28 years of service to New York City youth, we’ll meet our $250,000 fundraising goal and get through these uncertain times. Together.
