Our Lady of Salvation Church - Dadar - Mumbai - INDIA

O.L. of Salvation Youth Choir

Head:                   Edwin Carvalho
Asst. Head:           Peter Trinidade
Priest-in-charge:  Fr. Vinay Kamat

Our Lady of Salvation Youth Choir is the realization of a dream formed in July 1977 under the direction of its founder Fr. Edward Sequeira. The Choir celebrated its Silver Jubilee on 28th July, 2002. In the span of 30 years the dedication, drive and enthusiasm of the members under the direction of its conductor and organist, Bridget Carvalho, have helped it to expand into a full-fledged Choir which has left an indelible mark on the Church of Our Lady of Salvation.


The Choir comprises singers from different socio-economic backgrounds and age-groups, mostly school and college students, amateur musicians, young working people from different walks of life who are all bound by a common desire and passion for semi-classical, gospel and light music. They strongly believe that music and the arts have the power to transcend racial, communal and religious barriers.

The Choir, though primarily dedicated to rendering Liturgical Music at the Church of Our Lady of Salvation, has performed varied programmes of music over the past 30 years. Their repertoire ranges from well-known classical, religious works and old favourites to effervescent jazz and pop.


Under the baton of Chapman Roberts, the Choir has also performed on the concert stage, notably along with the American Gospel Singers at the Jazz Yatra '80 festival in Mumbai. The Choir has also performed for two consecutive years at the Christmas concerts under the baton of Pervez Doctor along with the B.P Salon Ensemble at the Patkar Auditorium, the Christmas broadcast of Yuletide Music on Yuv Vani, All India Radio, Mumbai and at various prestigious functions and in different churches in and outside Mumbai. The Choir sings on Mondays & Tuesdays at the weekly Church service and on Sundays at the 10:00 am. Mass. The performances of the Choir and their efforts at fostering and promoting religious music have been lauded by both press and public.
