The Basilica of Saint Mary Cathedral Choir was notified Oct. 14 of their selection to sing at the 11:30am Mass at the Notre Dame Cathedral on June 7 in Paris, France.
The performance will be a part of the choir's summer tour to France.
"I am absolutely thrilled to have the choir selected to sing at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris," said Teri Larson, Cathedral Choir director. "This is a huge honor."
Any choir requesting to sing at the Cathedral must complete an extensive auditioning process, to include sending a recording of a performance and complete biographies of both the choir and director(s).
"Last time the choir sang in this space was for a 5:00pm Saturday vigil mass," added Larson. This time, the choir was selected for the Sunday service meaning, "we will be heard by thousands, as well as broadcast all over the world."
The Cathedral of Notre Dame is one of the most well-known church buildings in the world and serves as the cathedral for the Archdiocese of Paris.
