Autumn Concert Trilogy, Presented Virtually
Oct 3 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Dear Friends of the Shrine,

Music comes from the heart. At The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii, your heart always has a home. As a Shrine family, nothing brings us closer together than the sounds of beautiful music.

During this pandemic time, many of us have not been able to visit the Shrine as much as in years past. To ensure that we do not lose that special place in our hearts, we have done our best to make sure that the “Shrine comes to you!”

With the wonderful success of our “Mary & Christmas” recorded concert, we thought it would be a great time to bring the “Shrine to you…” again!

And so, it is with great joy and honor that we invite you to our Shrine “Autumn Concert Trilogy:”

Il Cinema  *  L’Opera  *  Omaggio a Sinatra

On each Sunday evening, we will release one of our virtual concerts.

These three concerts are truly magical moments. I know, I was there when we recorded them! Now, I want to share them with our Shrine family.

I am confident that the music will touch your hearts, as it did mine. After all, that is what beautiful music does best… from our Shrine to your home.

Wishing you God’s blessings & magical music,

Rev. Richard N. Fragomeni, PhD, Rector
