The Little Singers of Monaco, under the direction of Mr Pierre Debat, started their American tour on July 6 and 7 with two concerts in New York.

The first was at the Grotte Eglise Notre Dame, French-speaking parish in the Columbia University district, organised by the Consulate General of Monaco in New York, in partnership with the Committee of French Associations and French language of New York; The second at St. Bartholomew’s Church, presented as part of the “Great Music at St. Bart’s” musical programme.

To mark the centenary of the birth of Prince Rainier III, founder of Les Petits Chanteurs de Monaco in 1974, the tour program includes a tribute through one of his favourite songs, Le Campanile de Saint-Nicolas.

Les Petits Chanteurs are on tour on the East Coast of the United States until July 25. After New York, the group travels to Washington DC, Savannah, Port St. Lucie and Miami.

The tour is organised with the support of the various representations of the Prince’s Government in the United States: the Embassy of Monaco in Washington, the Consulate General in New York, and the honorary consulates in Atlanta and Miami.
