The PROJcast

Mar 24, 2020

“...‘Cause New York is here to stay, and just won’t go away.” - Jayleen, age 16

For the first of our new series mini episodes - while we’re all socially distanced - we’re sharing some of the content that we’ve got saved up. Today we have “HERE TO STAY,” a song from our 2018 Songmaking Concert, “Songs from Hell’s Kitchen,” with lyrics by Project member Jayleen, music by Richard C. Walter, and performed by Nikki Massoud.

A production of The 52nd Street Project, a non-profit arts education organization working with children (ages 9 - 18) in Hell’s Kitchen in Manhattan. The Project brings kids together with adult artists to create original work for the theater. The PROJcast offers a behind-the-scenes view of the work of the Project as the kids create and explore theater as well as other art forms, such as song, dance, poetry, film and more. Long term-mentoring relationships form the basis of much of the Project’s work, and these episodes will feature reporting, stories, performances and interviews with kids and adults.

The 52nd Street Project is supported by The Altman Foundation, & The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation.
