‘A New Year’s Toast – 2,’ the concert this year will be held at the Gozo Ministry’s Hall, Victoria and starts at 7.30pm, entrance is free.
The Gaulitanus Choir, directed by its founder-director Colin Attard and accompanied by Stephen Attard, will present a varied repertoire chosen for this festive day.
Four Christmas Songs by Don Besig will be receiving their Malta premiere. Three rhythmic and bouncy numbers follow: Charles Rosen’s Christmas Gloria, David Willcocks’s A Birthday Carol and Alleluia! Gloria! from the musical ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ by Vann Trapp and Tom Fettke.
The choir, including the soloists and a backing instrumental ensemble, will bring the concert to a truly festive ending with ‘New Year’s Medley – 2,’ a medley of ever-popular Neapolitan songs.
Young up-and-coming violinist Pierre Louis Attard, back home for Yuletide from his studies in Scotland, will join in the entertainment with some solo numbers.
The concert is being supported by the Gozo Cultural Office and Bank of Valletta.
