St. John Paul II Concert Choir to Return to Italy on Tour

(Hyannis, MA 1/31/23)–From February 16th through February 24th, the St. John Paul II School Concert Choir will once again tour Italy–five years since their first tour in 2017. This high school choir from Cape Cod, which celebrates the immense treasury of Catholic Music, will perform throughout Rome. 

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these students to perform at sites significant to our Catholic heritage. Additionally, they will experience a cultural and historical tour of central Italy with professional guides. I am so proud of the work they have put in for this tour, and we pray for its success and safe travels,” said Mrs. Susan Niden, Interim President.

Thirty-two members of the choir will perform at venues including St. Peter’s Basilica, the United States Naval Base in Naples, the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, the Abbey of St. Benedict in Monte Cassino, and the Basilica of St. Mary Major. Additionally, they will attend the Wednesday Papal Audience, and perform a full concert at the Church of St. Agnes.  

The St. John Paul II School Concert Choir and Chamber Choir have also performed at St. Patrick’s Cathedral and in New York City, on their Broadway Concert Tour, where students have had the opportunity to perform and attend workshops with Broadway actors, and music and theater directors. 

“We prepare students to become performers on the stage of life, regardless of their chosen career, endeavoring to fulfill their vocation in Christ,” said Richard Fish, Performing Arts Director.

Located in Hyannis, St. John Paul II School is a Catholic school that welcomes and serves students of all faiths in grades five through twelve. ###
