Posted : Sep-01-2017


For the first time in its history, the Sistine Chapel Choir (commonly known as the Pope’s Choir) will visit Canada. The first stop of the Canadian tour will take place on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica. This internationally renowned group of 30 boys and 22 men sing for the Holy Father’s celebrations at the Vatican and tour the world to share the gift of sacred music. The Sistine Chapel Choir is considered one of the most prominent and oldest choirs in the world, dating back to the 7th century.

The concert will also feature a performance by the students of St. Michael’s Choir School, one of only six choir schools in the world affiliated with the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music in Rome.
