USA Tour July 2019
The Schola will be touring the USA in July 2019. Following on from the great success of the Schola's tour to the East Coast of the USA in 2017, visiting Boston, New York and Washington DC, this tour will take the choir to Utah and California. The choir will be singing a programme of sacred music from the English and Spanish renaissance. Beginning in Salt Lake City, UT, the Schola will sing a Mass and Concert at the beautiful Cathedral of the Madeleine. We are especially grateful to our friends at the famous Madeleine Choir School for hosting us. The Schola will then travel to Southern California to sing Mass and the first ever concert in the newly-consecrated Christ Cathedral (formerly the Crystal Cathedral) in the Diocese of Orange. The next stop on the tour is Thomas Aquinas College, Santa Paula, CA where the Schola will sing a Musical Oratory in the beautiful Chapel of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, designed by award-winning architect Duncan Stroik. The Schola will join the Mission Trail, singing at three of California's historic Missions: Santa Barbara Mission, then Carmel Mission Basilica (in conjunction with the Carmel Bach Festival) and finally Mission Dolores in San Francisco. The last day of the tour will include sung Mass at San Francisco Cathedral celebrated by Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.
