On May 26th, 2013, the Adult ESL Program at the YWCA of Queens joined efforts with the Flushing Hospital Medical Center in co-hosting their first Health Fair & Day of Education at the YWCA of Queens. Health First also participated in the fair, providing information and answering inquires. The Health Fair targeted the ESL population at the YW, many of whom come from low-income families and lack health insurance.

The YWCA of Queens just hosted its annual New York Music Competition in March. Selecting the winners was especially challenging this year as all of the contestants displayed a tremendous amount of talent. We are especially pleased to announce a grand prize winner, Yun Han, who participated in the cello division; she will be the 7th grand prize winner since we began the New York Music competition 16 years ago. She will be given an opportunity to have a solo recital at the YWCA of Queens separate from the winners’ concert. Please visit our NYMC page for a complete list of winners!
The winners concert will take place at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall on April 25th, 2013. Tickets ($20) can be purchased at the Carnegie Weill Hall Box Office or online http://www.carnegiehall.org/.
