    A citywide artistic engagement project involving singing is taking place in New York.

    An elevated park, known as the High Line, is the stage for a unique performance by the Mile Long Opera group.

    One thousand performers sing about changes taking place in society and how it affects them, based on interviews with New Yorkers.
