The “Maîtrise Sainte-Cécile de la Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Luxembourg” is particularly proud that an entire series of events and concerts with internationally renowned choirs is scheduled to celebrate its 175th anniversary. The choir was formed on 16 June 1844, first as a male choir and then in 1965 as a mixed choir. In 2017, the Choir had the honour of singing a concert in Rome and providing a musical arrangement for a mass in St Peter’s Basilica. In addition to its liturgical activities, through its cantos, the Choir brings to life the festive nature of national and religious events in the Cathedral of Luxembourg. Since September 2013, Marc Dostert has led the cathedral choir which counts today more than 50 members.
