Haitian Boys Choir
Les Petits Chanteurs (The Little Singers), the renowned boys choir of the Holy Trinity Episcopal Cathedral Music School of Port-au-Prince, Haiti toured the United States in 2012. Oakland was one of the last stops on the tour. This 30-voice choir, accompanied by St. Augustine’s string ensemble, appeared at the St. Augustine Episcopal Church.
Their Holy Trinity Cathedral complex in Haiti was completely destroyed in the earthquake on January 12, 2010. Before the earthquake, the Cathedral’s Music School served more than 1000 students. The tour is designed not only to focus awareness on the rich musical traditions of Haiti, but also to support the rebuilding of the Holy Trinity Music School. Holy Trinity Music School is the only school of its kind in the country, and depends on charitable support to sustain its mission of education and music training for children and young adults.
A donation of 10% of the purchase price will be made to their organization for each sale.
