Boys choir Les Petits Chanteurs de Monaco on tour in the US

Les Petits Chanteurs de Monaco, under the direction of Pierre Debat, have kicked off their American tour with two concerts in New York.

The first concert on 6th July was held at the Grotto Church of Notre Dame, a French-speaking parish in the Columbia University district, organised by the Consulate General of Monaco in New York, in partnership with the Committee of French and French-speaking Associations of New York. The second on the 7th July was at St. Bartholomew’s Church, presented as part of the ‘Great Music at St. Bart’s’ musical program.

To mark the centenary of the birth of Prince Rainier III, founder of the Les Petits Chanteurs de Monaco (Little Singers of Monaco) in 1974, the tour program includes a tribute through one of his favourite pieces, Le Campanile de Saint-Nicolas.

Les Petits Chanteurs de Monaco are touring the East Coast of the United States until 25th July. After New York, the group will travel to Washington DC, Savannah, Port St. Lucie and Miami.

The tour is organised with the support of the various representations of the Prince’s Government in the United States: the Embassy of Monaco in Washington, the Consulate General in New York, and the honorary consulates in Atlanta and Miami.
