Immaculate Heart of Mary and Precious Blood School Children’s Choir
The Immaculate Heart of Mary and Precious Blood School Children’s Choir are comprised of second - eighth grade students from the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Precious Blood School, under the Catholic School system of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Both choirs were founded by its artistic director, Cristopher “Pete” Avendano. They are members of the American Federation of Pueri Cantores. In December of 2015, members of the choirs went to sing for the International Congress of Pueri Cantores in Rome, Italy, where they also sang for a mass celebrated by Pope Francis in St. Peters Basilica in the Vatican. The choir has performed numerously with The Filipino American Symphony Orchestra. With an arsenal of multilingual and multi-genre repertoire, this dynamic youth ensemble also performs in concerts, various local festivals, conventions and humanitarian performances to further enrich its musical journey.
