The Madeleine Choir School Home
The Chorister's of the Madeleine Choir School partner with several organizations each year, in addition to executing their own concert series and tour of an international or domestic destination. Last November the choir performed in several cities in Italy, including their last stop in Rome. More recently our choristers played key roles in the Utah Opera's production of The Little Prince with MCS Fifth Grader, Tai Fluchel, in the lead role. We would like to share more of the performance events to come and invite you to join us. February 21: A JR. HIGH AND HIGH SCHOOL CHORAL FESTIVAL -- 7:00 PM at the Cathedral of the Madeleine.
