The Choral San Francesco was born with the idea to bring together a group of friends that since adolescence animated the Sunday liturgy in the parish church and who have a passion by a true love for singing and being together in fraternity. It was founded in 2008 and has taken part in numerous exhibitions in Italy earning many accolades.
The peculiarity of the choral is the fact that many members of the group are married couples and in June 2009 he had the opportunity to participate in the Pilgrimage of the families in Assisi, organized by the Diocese of Macerata, animating liturgies in the Cathedral of St. Ruffino and the Upper Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi.
