Concert in the Vatican for the Year of Faith



On Saturday evening a concert sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization as part of the Year of Faith was given in the Paul VI Audience Hall. After Archbishop Rino Fisichella, president of that dicastery, greeted those present on behalf of the Holy Father, who couldn't attend because of an “urgent task that cannot be put off but must be dealt with at the present moment”, he read the Pope's words of thanks to the organizers, singers, choir, and orchestra. Then the Italian Symphonic Orchestra of the RAI, conducted by Juraj Valcuha, performed Beethoven's Symphony no. 9 in D minor op.125, accompanied by the Choir of the National Academy of St Cecilia.You can find more information at: www.visnews.org and www.vatican.va
