Sebastián Palacio has been with Fundación ¡Vivan Los Niños! in Medellín for 11 years and was the Head Choirboy of Funvini’s Choir for several years. Now he is awaiting the start of his studies at university there, studies that he hopes will lead to him becoming a Musical Director. Possessed of a fine tenor voice, Sebastián was invited to spend 6 months at Worcester Cathedral, as a guest of its choir, and, having obtained a 6-month visa, he arrived on January 7th, fresh from Medellín’s 34′ temperatures, and prepared to battle out a British winter that was close to 0′! He has survived remarkably well and loves the UK, and its language, which he has learned to speak very quickly and fluently.
Between April 7th and 12th Sebastián will be in Walsingham, helping in our charity shop on the High Street and generally meeting as many of our supporters as possible. On Sunday 12th he will transfer to Doncaster where he will stay until the 18th, and where he will be singing in a concert at St Peter-in-Chains Catholic Church, Chequer Road, on the night of Friday 17th at 7.30pm.
