City at Peace Releases First CD City at Peace Volume 1
At the very heart of City at Peace are ordinary teenagers
achieving extraordinary things. Over the years in many shows, these teenagers,
working in collaboration with professional artists and musicians, have created
dozens of original musical compositions, articulating the sometimes difficult
reality they face and their remarkable spirit for the future.
This year on one weekend, City at Peace brought together
a group of teenagers from City at Peace programs in four different cities -
New York, Los Angeles, Charlotte, and Baton Rouge. They gathered together
as a national chorus to rehearse and record a compilation of City at
Peace songs from past shows. Each song comes from one of the original
musicals written and performed by City at Peace teenagers over the
last four years. All of the lyrics were written by the youth cast
members themselves or come from their writings or ideas. Read more...
