|Email item||Print item||
Schola Cantorum Jubilate, this time around is embarking on a new project, which it said, "once again shows the initiative and creativity the group holds."
An exclusive spring concert by this Gozitan choir is in the pipeline. The repertoire being prepared includes compositions by De Prez, Elgar, Chappell, Silvey, Rutter and Diemer among others. Some pieces will be sung a cappella and others will be accompanied by pianist Amy Rapa.
The musical Director and soprano Marouska Attard will also interpret pieces by internationally renowned Maltese composer Charles Camilleri. The promising young tenor Stanley Joe Portelli will interpret another solo while Anne Marie Camilleri will have her solo moment with piano improvisation.
All secular pieces that will be performed concern spring and the emerging nature which endows the surroundings with wonderful colours and birds' chirping.
'Blooming… afternoon tea with SCJ,' is being held on Sunday, the 22nd of May, starting at 4pm at Ta' Frenc Restaurant Courtyard. The date chosen is a month after Earth Day and few days before World Environment Day.
Both commemorative days should remind all mankind of the nature's generosity and at the same time, create a conscience towards the respect and care for 'our common home.'
Following the concert, a tea party will be held in order to complement the afternoon, with delicious man's creation thanks to Mother Nature. SCJ said that, "undoubtedly a cup of tea and some delicious savouries and sweets will go well on such a Sunday afternoon!"
All those interested in attending this special concert can purchase tickets which are for sale from Bargate Bookshop in Victoria and D'Amato Records Shop in Valletta.
SCJ said that "patrons are asked to dress smart casual and in pastel colours or in floral designs in order to create a colourful musical atmosphere filled with positivity, freshness and beauty!
