Following the success of the first Opera vs Pop Under the Stars concert by the Gozo Youth Wind Band & Orchestra, which was performed last year, the second edition of the concert was held last week in the courtyard of the Ministry for Gozo and proved to be another great success.
A large number of local people, along with Maltese and foreign visitors, enjoyed a wonderful atmosphere created by the orchestra, which is composed of 50 young Gozitan musicians directed by Joseph Grech.
During the programme, the Gozo Youth Wind Band & Orchestra entertained the audience with a varied reportoire of musical arrangements, including the Phantom of the Opera and the Sound of Music.
Special guests performing at this this years event, were Soprano Pamela Agius from New York, Bass Noel Galea and Tenor Ludwig Galea.
An exhibition of the works of the artist Paul A. Stellini was chosen for this occasion to complement this cultural event.
The concert ‘Opera vs Pop Under the Stars’ was organised in collaboration with the office of culture within the Ministry for Gozo and the American Embassy in Malta.
The Minister for Gozo, Giovanna Debono and the Charges d’Affaires of the American Embassy in Malta, Mr. Jason L. Davis, attended the event.
