A concert with the poor and for the poor. That's the motto of the Vatican's 4th event for people in need, featuring renowned Italian artists.
Hosted by the Dicastery for the Service of Charity, the concert will be held on Friday, December 15 at 5:30pm in the Paul VI Audience Hall. It will include 3,000 seats for the poor, refugees, immigrants and anyone facing social hardship.
Created in 2015, this concert has become a tradition in the Vatican, with the past three editions also featuring musicians and orchestras from the international music scene. And previous attendees have expressed their gratitude for the initiative.
It's one of the most beautiful things Pope Francis can carry out. It shows that we are all the same.
From the poor to the well off. We're all here. It's a great example for everyone and besides I really like this type of music.
After the show, the attendees will receive a boxed dinner and other gifts. The goal of the concert is to offer an experience of beauty through music.
