Monaco Boys Choir – Free Concert (Donations to Charity)
Thursday 18 July at 7.00pm
Paisley Methodist Church is pleased to announce the visit of the Monaco Boys Choir as part of their summer tour of the UK.
Monaco Boys Choir, “Les Petits Chanteurs de Monaco”, is one of the world’s leading youth choirs and is celebrated internationally for its repertoire of classical and traditional works.
The choir was established by Prince Albert I of Monaco in 1904 and is comprised of 30 boys, aged between 9 and 18 years of age. Today, under the patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, and with the generous support of the Monaco Government, the choir performs charity concerts all around the globe.
Monaco Boys Choir gives an average of 40 concerts each year and has visited more than 40 countries. Its musical repertoire includes sacred works by the likes of Bach, Mozart, Fauré and Mendelssohn, as well as traditional folk songs and French chansons.
The choir has performed at venues such as the Kennedy Centre in Washington, the Opera of Shanghai and the Conservatoire Tchaikovsky in Moscow. It has also performed at the United Nations Headquarters in New York and at the UNESCO General Conference in Paris.
In July 2018 the choir undertook a 11 date tour of Asia, culminating in a performance at the 5000 seat Tokyo International Forum with renowned Japanese singer Koji Tamaki and the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.
