A perennial favorite on the European choral concert circuit, the Monaco Boys Choir is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
This July, they return to the United States for a series of free concerts on the East Coast, from New York City to Miami.

About the Monaco Boys Choir...

The award-winning troupe was founded in 1974 by Prince Rainier III to showcase the Principality’s historic association with culture and the performing arts. It is a part of the Monaco Cathedral Choir and is composed of talented children from ages eight to 18, who have passed rigorous examinations to be admitted into the prestigious ensemble. After substantial training, the group traditionally embarks on a spring tour of Europe and a summer tour to more far-flung destinations. The Monaco Boys Choir, especially popular for their unusual repertoire of works written for children, have visited more than 40 nations around the world and perform an average of 30 to 40 concerts a year. With the generous support of the Monégasque government, the choir is able to donate its talents to concerts organized on behalf of humanitarian associations throughout the world.

On previous visits to the U.S., the choir has appeared at many prestigious venues including Yankee Stadium for a rendition of “God Bless America” at a game opening and Bryant Park in New York City (2002), the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and the Kravis Center in Palm Beach. They also appeared live on NBC’s The Today Show during their 1999 tour.

The musical repertoire – directed by Pierre Debat –includes sacred musical works by Charpentier, Bach, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Fauré and Franck; French and Monégasque folk songs; English-language songs such as “My Love is a Red, Red Rose” and “Joshua” and patriotic American songs “God Bless America”, “America The Beautiful” and “The Star Spangled Banner”.
