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.
