The Little Singers of Monaco are currently on a concert tour of the UK and kicking off their British leg was a momentous performance in the Tower of London.
The male choir was hosted by the Monaco Embassy on Sunday 7th July in London, before performing that evening, by special permission, at the Royal Chapel of St. Peter ad Vincula, the parish church of the Tower of London.
The historic building dates from 1520 and is best known as the burial place of some of the most famous prisoners executed at the tower, including Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard and Lady Jane Grey.
Around 40 people, invited by the Embassy and members of the congregation of the Chapel, were able to access the Tower of London after closing hours and attend the first ever concert of the Little Singers in the UK.
The next day, the choir performed at the London Helvetian Church in the presence of several ambassadors and members of London’s diplomatic community. This building, still an active place of worship, was recently renovated to host artistic events and offered beautiful acoustics to the young artists.
The Little Singers will continue their tour with a concert at Notre Dame de France, their third and last performance in the capital, before heading to northern England and Scotland.
