Sistine Chapel Choir To Perform At The Basilica This September

We are posting this a little early since we assume this will be a well attended event, so you may want to make your plans now. On Wednesday, September 20  the Sistine Chapel Choir will perform at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at 6:00 p.m. From the event page:

For the first time in more than three decades, the Sistine Chapel Choir returns to the U.S. to perform.

This highly-accomplished group of 30 boys and 22 men sings for the Holy Father’s liturgies under the direction of Maestro Massimo Palomba. Officially called the Cappella Musicale Pontifica Sistina and affectionately known as the “Pope’s Choir,” this group is considered the most prominent and oldest choir in the world, dating back to the seventh century.

While this special event is free and open to the public, we encourage you to consider sponsorship opportunities. Become a part of the Papal Choir’s historic visit to the capital of the U.S.

There is more information about sponsorship levels on the event page. The Basilica is located at 400 Michigan Ave NE.
