Assisi Pax Mundi is back

Assisi Pax Mundi is back

Sacred franciscan music is going to invade Assisi from Thursday the 21st to Sunday the 24th of October. Many free concerts are going to take place in Saint Francis places. The International Festival of Sacred Franciscan music, Assisi Pax Mundi, is organized by the four franciscan families with the cooperation of the Chapel Choir of the Papal Basilica of St Francis and it has been renewed for its eighth edition.

Concerts will take place in different moments of the day, in different locations connected to Saint Francis.

A preview will kick off the festival on Saturday the 16th of October. The final concert will be the event’s  crowning moment: on Saturday the 23rd of October at 9 p.m. all entered groups will participate in it in the Saint Francis Upper Basilica.

Choral and instrumental groups are invited to present their repertoire and to meet each other in the beautiful setting of Assisi, to share their experiences and feelings.

This music event, with its harmonies, wants to be the occasion to reaffirm the typical franciscan vocation of music that is proclaiming the Gospel through the music that can comfort who is listening to it by infusing the power of hope. This will be the leitmotif of this eighth edition of Assisi Pax Mundi. Franciscan families took inspiration for that from Saint Francis words contained in his Simple Pray: “Where is the despair, I bring hope”.

After the preview, the festival will take place on Thursday the 21st of October at 9 p.m. in the Santa Maria degli Angeli Basilica; the following concert will be held on Friday the 22nd of October at 9 p.m. in the Saint Rufino Cathedral; a double event is expected on Saturday the 23rd: a concert will take place at 4 p.m. in the Saint Rufino Cathedral and another one at 9 p.m. in the Saint Francis Upper Basilica.

The festival is realized thanks to the contribution of the Minister of the Culture, the Umbria Region, the City of Assisi and the patronage of the Pontifical Council for the Culture. For info
