Directed by Mr. Pierre Debat, the Monaco's Little Singers have commenced their American tour on July 6th and 7th with two concerts in New York City. The first performance was held at the Grotto Church of Notre Dame, a Francophone parish in the Columbia University district, organized by the Consulate General of Monaco in New York, in partnership with the Committee of French and French-Language Associations of New York. The second performance took place at St. Bartholomew's Church, as part of the 'Great Music at St. Bart's' music program.
To mark the centenary of the birth of Prince Rainier III, the founder of the Monaco's Little Singers in 1974, the tour program includes a tribute through one of his favorite pieces, 'Le Campanile de Saint-Nicolas'.
The Monaco's Little Singers will be touring the East Coast of the United States until July 25th. After New York, the group will travel to Washington DC, Savannah, Port St. Lucie, and Miami. The tour is organized with the support of various representations of the Princely 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.
