The Davis High Madrigal Singers will perform a benefit concert at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 28, at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, 1017 11th St., Sacramento.

The chamber choir will be conducted by Karen Gardias, Madrigal director, and visiting guest conductor Fabio Avolio, with whom the Madrigals worked while on tour in Rome last July.

Avolio has taught at the school of the Pueri Cantores della Cappella Sistina in the Vatican and currently teaches the choir at the Conservatorio di Musica T. Schipa in Lecce, Italy.

He has conducted choirs and orchestras in the presence of Pope John Paul II and other Italian authorities, and has led numerous master classes and choral labs on sacred polyphony of the Schola Romana of the 16th century in Italy and abroad.

After the performance, a special collection will be taken to benefit the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

Naoko McHale, a teacher of Japanese at Davis High School, noted, “Although not much news on the earthquake and tsunami is reported on TV and radio lately, there are still 190,000 people living in shelters without enough food and warm clothes. The Madrigals’ donation will be a great help for those people.

“One hundred percent of the collected money donation will be sent to Red Cross Japan — Japan Earthquake Relief Fund.”

For more information on making a charitable donation on behalf on the Davis High Madrigal Singers and the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund, email Madrigal treasurer Michael Coleman at coleman@muni1.com.
