The St. Joseph Band directed by Mro Sunny Galea and assisted by Mro Frankie Debono performed its annual Instrumental Concert at Pjazza l-Madonna Ta’ Loreto, Ghajnsielem.
The event started when a short band march started from the Club’s premises and ended on the main square. Some of the excellent performance included works by Giuseppe Verdi, Nino Rota, Jean Sibelius and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Some of these pieces were ‘Il Padrino,’ ‘Finlandia,’ ‘The Sound of Music,’ ‘Jesus Christ Superstar,’ ‘Buongiorno Italia’ and ‘Calypso Symphony’ composed by Sunny Galea.
Band Club President Gino Cauchi and Acting President Anton Tabone both made a short speech for the occasion. Shortly after his speech, the Acting President of Malta unveiled an abstract painting of St Joseph, work of the well known artist Vince Caruana. This painting will be displayed in the new committee room.
Other distinguished guests included Giovanna Debono, Minister for Gozo and Dr. Chris Said, Parliamentary Secretary.
