Join us on Saturday, November 14th at 2pm (NY) 8pm (Rome) for an unforgettable musical journey as soprano Natalia Pavlova and organist Alessandra Ciccaglioni draw you into a world of sacred vocal and organ music from Italian, English and German baroque times to the present.

The concert will be broadcast live from the beautiful historical Church of St. Alphonsus Liguori in the center of Rome, one of the rare examples of neo-Gothic architecture in Rome and one of the last papal churches in the city.

Natalia Pavlova, about 1 year ago

Dear friends, I am looking forward to see you on my concert Sacred Voices, which will be very important for me and for organist from Rome Alessandra Ciccaglioni, with fantastic romantic organ in such beutiful church. The original icon of 'Our Lady of Perpetual Help' is venerated in every part of the world since 1866 when it was entrusted to the Redemptorists by Pope Pius IX! See you there soon!
