St. Martin’s To Host Haitian Youth Choir

Posted

St. Martin’s-in-the-Field Episcopal Church and School will present Les Petits Chanteurs, the renowned boys choir of the Holy Trinity Music School of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in concert Tuesday, September 17, at 2:15pm and 7:00pm. The concerts will be held in the church sanctuary.

The Holy Trinity Cathedral complex was destroyed in Haiti’s 2010 earthquake. Before the disaster, the music school served more than 1,000 students. Every year, the boys choir goes on a U.S. tour to help raise support for rebuilding the school.

Les Petits Chanteurs is a select group of singers ranging in age from 8 to 18. Over the years, ensembles from the Holy Trinity Music School have performed at the Kennedy Center and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art in Washington, D.C., Lincoln Center in New York City, Tanglewood Music Center with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, with the Chicago Children’s Choir and at more than 90 churches across the United States.

The concerts are free and open to the public.
