Eurochoir performs at Papal Palace in Avignon

Today after our trip to the Pont du Guard we had an opportunity to sing at the Papal Palace in Avignon. The palace was the home to 7 popes from 1305 to 1377. Six popes were elected here in Avignon, including Pope Urban V, a member of the Order of Saint Benedict. We performed in the grand hall of the palace where the papal conclaves were held when the popes of Avignon were elected. Photo by Mr. Robert Aldrich '01, Assistant to the Director.
