Francisco Nunez | Hal Leonard Francisco Nunez Francisco J. Núñez, a recipient of a 2011 MacArthur Fellowship presented to individuals for their “exceptional originality in & dedication to their creative pursuits,” is the artistic director of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City™, a composer, conductor, visionary, & leading figure in music education. In 1988 he founded YPC to provide children of all ethnic, religious, & economic backgrounds with a safe haven for personal and artistic growth & to date has changed the lives of thousands of young people. YPC is widely recognized for its exceptional caliber and has been cited as a model of artistic excellence and diversity by the President’s Committee on the Arts & the Humanities under the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. Visit www.ypc.org Mr. Núñez also leads University Glee Club of New York City and was the director of choral activities at NYU from 2003 to 2010. As a composer, Mr. Núñez won early acclaim for seamlessly fusing a wide gamut of cultures and musical idioms, writing his first choral work, Misa Pequeña, at age 15. Today, he composes countless compositions & arrangements in all musical formats and styles, which are published by Boosey & Hawkes. With the creation of his Transient Glory® commissioning series of concerts, recordings, symposia, and publications, Mr. Núñez has greatly expanded the repertoire of choral music for young people with more than 60 works by today’s most distinguished composers. In association with Chester Novello and G Schirmer, the Transient Glory® compositions are being published by Boosey & Hawkes, where Mr. Núñez is an editor, so that other choruses worldwide can have access to this challenging music. He recently extended Transient Glory® to Radio Radiance™, a radio, digital media and internet program, presented in partnership with WNYC New York Public Radio and American Public Media, to develop new audiences for cutting-edge choral music. Francisco Núñez grew up in close-knit Dominican family in New York City’s Washington Heights. After he graduated from NYU as a piano performance major, he formed the Young People’s Chorus of New York City™, bringing children from underserved neighborhoods together with children from more privileged circumstances. With music as the equalizer, the diversity in the group resulted in new vocal colors and a confident urban style, creating not only a vibrant new choral sound, but also an avenue for children to succeed. As an authority on the subject, he is often invited to give keynote addresses at choral symposia & conferences across the country. Mr. Núñez is the recipient of numerous awards, including an ASCAP Concert Music Award, a New York Choral Society’s Choral Excellence Award, & a Liberty Award from the New York Post.

About Us | Hal Leonard Hal Leonard Corporate History In the late 1930s in Winona, Minnesota, the late Harold "Hal" Edstrom, his brother Everett "Leonard" Edstrom and their friend Roger Busdicker had formed a very popular dance band. Concerned that their conservative father wouldn't approve of using the family name for a band, Harold and Ev took parts of their names and called the band Hal Leonard. As leader of the Hal Leonard Band, Ev eventually became known as "Hal Leonard." The company Hal Leonard was founded in 1947, after the Hal Leonard Band broke up. At the time, Ev started a music store using the Hal Leonard name while Roger and Harold were both directing award-winning high school bands in Winona. In those days, most school bands played serious classical literature, but Harold and Roger had the unique ability because of their professional experience to arrange popular music for school bands. Soon band directors across the US wanted their arrangements. They started to mimeograph copies and sell them. They realized that to successfully (and legally!) launch a new publishing company, they needed to license songs, so they ventured to New York's Tin Pan Alley in search of copyrights. What they got on their trip was an education in publishing and the rights to "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now," one of the most popular songs of the day. Eventually, many music publishers in New York were licensing Hal Leonard to do school band arrangements of their songs. Thus began their publishing business and an entirely new industry. Hal Leonard continued to grow and expand into other areas, including instructional materials and repertoire for every instrument, voice, and ensemble. In 1970, Keith Mardak and associates started a new division of Hal Leonard called Learning Unlimited to create the first book/audio music instructional products. This division soon outgrew the company, and Mardak was named general manager for all of Hal Leonard. In 1985, an internal management team led by Mardak purchased Hal Leonard from its original founders. A new corporate headquarters was opened in Milwaukee, WI, in addition to expanding the Winona facilities to handle the company's dramatic growth. Under Mardak's leadership, Hal Leonard dramatically increased its publishing output and pursued a series of acquisitions, leading to an unprecedented period of expansion for the company. Today, Hal Leonard is the world's largest print music publisher, with the #1 methods for learning guitar, piano, band, orchestra, plus publications for learning virtually every instrument imaginable. In addition, they distribute other esteemed publishers including Berklee Press, Boosey & Hawkes, DeHaske Publications, Faber Piano Adventures, G. Henle Verlag, Robert King, Peermusic Classical, G. Schirmer, Schott, Willis, and many more. See all of our publishing partners here. In addition to still being the leader in printed music publications, Hal Leonard has also led the way in digital music technology. Hal Leonard developed SheetMusicDirect.com in 1997 (four years BEFORE iTunes!) with thousands of songs arranged for different instruments available for download. GuitarInstructor.com followed, featuring online video guitar lessons and tab arrangements for thousands of songs. In addition, the company expanded by purchasing Noteflight.com, a music composition website, and Groove3, a website providing online training for music technology. In addition, Essential Elements Interactive was added to the Essential Elements Band and Strings methods which added a valuable online component to benefit both instructors and students. Over a half million students access EEi during the school year. Hal Leonard continued the tradition of innovation in print music with the development of MyLibrary, a cloud-based portal for their books with online content. Customers who purchase books with online audio, access the content online using the unique code inside each book. Audio can be streamed or downloaded and includes PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right. In 2020, Hal Leonard launched their own proprietary streaming e-book format: Hal Leonard Digital Books. These interactive, cloud-based publications were designed especially for musicians and include access to embedded video or audio on many titles. Hal Leonard launched Essential Elements Music Class in 2019 to provide a cloud-based, online resource for general music education complete with songs, lesson resources, ukulele and recorder lesson plans, and many more resources for the music educator. In its catalog of more than one million available titles, Hal Leonard represents many of the world's best known and most respected publishers, artists, songwriters, arrangers and musical instrument manufacturers.
