Four bands in four concerts by the sea: Gozo Brass Festival 2017
|Email item||Print item||
Hot summer evenings in Gozo are best enjoyed by the sea, in the hope of catching a cooling breeze.
Entertainment as an added accompaniment can also be very pleasant, and over the years this has often included brass band concerts.
This year, there will be a new addition to the cultural calendar, with the first edition of the Gozo Brass Festival 2017 – with four Brass Bands playing in four concerts at Mgarr and Marsalforn Bays during the month of August.
They will include three Gozitan Bands – Brass Delights, DCapitals and Brass Tubes, who will be joined by Stardust Brass from Malta.
The Culture Office within the Ministry for Gozo, organisers of these concerts, said that they are promoting the traditional love for brass bands – but in a lighter mode!
The programme will be as follows:
Sat, 12th August at 9:00pm – Brass Delights at Mgarr
Thu, 17th August at 9:00pm – DCapitals Band at Marsalforn
Sat, 19th August at 9:00pm – Stardust Brass at Mgarr
Sat, 26th August at 9:00pm – Brass Tubes at Marsalforn.
