Male choir from Warsaw to perform in Bolton

BOLTON LANDING - The acclaimed men's and boys' choir of Warsaw Archdiocesan Cathedral is set to perform at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Aug. 20, at the Church of the Blessed Sacrement.

During the past decade, the Cantores Minores choir has presented concerts in 14 nations, and has participated in 16 festivals both in Poland and abroad. The 36-member group has performed with such prestigious orchestras as the National Philharmonic in Warsaw and Sinfonia Varsovia - with whom the choir has also recorded.

It has won top honors in choral competitions in Moscow and Italy. The group received Pan-European attention when it was one of two European choirs to perform in a concert at the Vatican. This concert was televised live throughout Europe.

The Marcella Sembrich Opera Museum welcomes Cantores Minores to the Bolton church, located at 7 Goodman Ave. The concert is free, however a goodwill offering will be collected.

Under the direction of Joseph A. Herter, the full ensemble returns to the Bolton church for a program highlighted by Polish and American works. Cantores Minores' Aug. 20 performance includes selections from Vittorio Giannini's "Mass for Men's Choir and Organ."
