Summit Singers Prepare to Make History, Perform at Sistine Chapel

SUMMIT, NJ - Thirty-four Summit singers are part of a 100-stong choral contingent that will soon make history as -- led by internationally renowned conductor Maestra Candace Wicke -- they will present the first concert by an American organization inside the Sistine Chapel.   

Opening the doors of the Sistine Chapel for an outside concert performance could be described as the Holy Grail of performance venues, yet that is the recent invitation extended to and accepted by the New Jersey based Continuo Arts Foundation.

No stranger to the Vatican or Vatican City’s non-profit musical extension, Fondazione Pro Musica E Arte Sacra, Continuo Arts Founder Candace Wicke was the first woman conductor to ever appear on the Fondazione’s annual international festival in Rome and only the second American, following the great Paul Salamonovich. “To say we are excited, thrilled and humbled by this unbelievable invitation is a huge understatement; truly, sometimes there are no words” said Wicke. “I don’t know how to describe the nature and importance of this concert opportunity we have been given; this won’t happen again.”

On Feb. 13, singers in the Continuo Arts Intergenerational Choral Ensembles, members of the national Continuo Arts Symphonic Chorus and singers from All Saints Princeton will travel to Ireland with many non-singing music and art aficionados.  Concerts will be presented in Limerick and Dublin with additional stops in Waterford, and Wicklo. Then it is on to Italy with performances in Assisi, St. Peter’s Basilica, and culminating in the concert experience of a lifetime inside the Sistine Chapel.  Whether performing or in the audience, attending this private concert surrounded by the world’s great artistic masterpieces, everyone present will undoubtedly experience the transformative power of great music and art.
