A New York-based professional vocal ensemble, The Salvatones consists of passionate, committed singers led by artistic director Daniel Brondel, who is the Associate Director of Music & Organist at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Since 2010, their impressive vocal artistry has been dazzling and delighting audiences in concert as well as in private and public events. Co-founded with President Salvatore Diana, The Salvatones’ mission is to inspire and improve lives through high-quality music and creative community engagement. With their first major educational initiative, The Salvatones Young Voices, the organization sponsors dynamic learning experiences, engaging young singers in collaborative concerts. The ensemble has collaborated with internationally renowned vocal ensembles including The Philippine Madrigal Singers, the Essence of Joy Singers, and DeKoor Close Harmony. Their yearly concert series, collaborating with the New York Virtuosi string ensembles, includes The Many Sounds of Christmas, The Many Sounds of Spring, and 9/11 Reflections. Singers from the Salvatones, along with Daniel Brondel, were honored to take part in the recent papal visit of His Holiness Pope Francis to New York City in 2015. The Salvatones have appeared throughout New York City and in Westchester, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, and Ohio. They performed the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon as part of the 2016 Paul Creston Award concert.
