The appointment with the final concert of the international festival of sacred Franciscan music is on Saturday the 19th of October at 8:30 p.m. at the Upper Basilica of Saint Francis in Assisi. As usual, after many free concerts held in the previous days, Saturday will be a day dedicated to the great music and all the musicians and choristers participating to Assisi Pax Mundi will take part in it.
More than 250 artists will give life to an evening during which you could listen different voices and music genres coming from different places of Italy and of Europe: all them they will be united thanks to the Listening, the Franciscan message and Charity, that is the theme of this sixth edition of the festival.
Concerts are starting at 11.30 in the morning in the St. Rufino Cathedral with the Exultate Deo – Maria SS Consolatrice Choir coming from Calatafimi Segesta. In the afternoon you will assist to the performance of the “Sturm and Drang” polyphonic choir. Two choirs will live up the afternoon (from 4.30 p.m.) in the Sala della Conciliazione of the municipal palace of Assisi: the “Commedia Harmonica” vocal ensemble, the only vocal group coming from Assisi, and the “Voci di Frignano” Choir (Pavullo nel Frignano – Modena).
The festival will end with a moment of meeting and pray with the solemn Mess of Sunday morning at 10.30 a.m. in the Upper Basilica of St. Francis. After the Mess all groups will sing together the Song of the Creatures by p. Domenico Stella.
