Holy Rosary’s Historic Centennial Celebrations
diAzzurra Carpo
Se riflettiamo su questo interrogativo, ci
accorgiamo che la musica è forse l’unico mezzo che
unisce tutti i popoli, di ogni luogo e etnia.Che sia
musica classica o di qualsiasi altro genere, ci troviamo
di fronte ad un mezzo di comunicazione potentissimo,
capace addirittura di unire tutti intorno ad un evento.
Pensiamo ad esempio al Capodanno: in quale luogo non
troviamo un concerto di musica classica? Dappertutto.
Addirittura in varie occasioni mi è capitato di essere
impegnato a Vienna nella preparazione del famoso
Concerto di Capodanno che siamo abituati a vedere

MICHAEL HOYT
Lei è considerato il grande talento emergente della
musica classica italiana. Ha collaborato e diretto
opere e spettacoli nei più famosi teatri della lirica,
dalla Scala di Milano all’Opera di Roma dal Covent
Garden di Londra alla Tokyo Symphony Orchestra,
con artisti del calibro di Pavarotti, Placido Domingo,
Carla Fracci, e addirittura in Vaticano Aalla presenza
del papa Benedetto XVI. Qual è il messaggio che la
musica sa donare a questo nostro mondo inquieto?

The celebration of Holy Rosary Church’s first
100 years of service to the local Italian-American
community began with an afternoon Mass on Sunday,
December 8, 2013, followed by a gala dinner attended
by about 700 parishioners and friends at the National
Building Museum.
Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who was the principal
celebrant at the Mass, remarked that, “Holy Rosary
parish has made visible, audible and tangible that
embrace of God that is our faith and Christ’s church
in our nation’s capital. This anniversary is not just a
celebration of past accomplishments, but it is also an
opportunity to reflect on the present moment and to
look to the future, as we are called to pass on the faith
as our ancestors did a century ago.”
Cardinal Wuerl concluded his remarks with
greetings to the parish in Italian.
