|Email item||Print item||
Eight children from Gozo formed part of the 270-strong Children’s Choir which accompanied tenor Joseph Calleja and Michael Bolton during the concert on the 19/07/2009 at the Luxol Grounds. They were selected out of hundreds of other applicants who auditioned for the choir back in the middle of May 2009.
It was the courage and determination of these children to be part of this choir for such a magnificent concert that made them travel to Malta with their parents for many long hours of rehearsal sessions.
The rehearsals were conducted under the directorship of soprano Gillian Zammit who also performed together with Winter Moods lead singer Ivan Grech and singer Chiara in the concert .
Thanks to the organisers of the concert NnG Promotions and the sponsorship of HSBC for this Children’s Choir, which gave these Gozitan Children the opportunity to be part of this memorable experience.
During a thank you party for the Children’s Choir, held on Saturday 25/07/2009 at The Westin Dragonara, the eight Gozitans met with the tenor Joseph Calleja and Winter Moods lead singer Ivan Grech, where photos from the concert were handed out to each child. The photos were signed by Joseph Calleja and Ivan Grech.
