Mater Dei High School Choirs, iNCANTATO CONCERTS TOURS, Papal Audience 2011

iNCANTATO Memories: Mater Dei sings for Pope Benedict

February 4, 2018 / Inside Europe

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO SING FOR THE POPE?

Experiencing a Papal Audience at the Vatican is a bucket list moment, especially for Catholic visitors to Rome. iNSIDE EUROPE highly recommends to include this milestone moment into Italy itineraries — and we are happy to request complimentary tickets for our travelers, and help to secure the best possible spots. Choirs, orchestras and bands touring Europe with iNCANTATO CONCERT TOURS, our signature brand for renowned performing ensembles, are likely to get the chance to sing or play for the Holy Father. There are no guarantees nor set time slots for visiting musicians to be called to perform at the General Papal Audience, and if the ensemble is called, the moment to salute the Pope can be quite short, but also incredible memorable.
