Because of the inclement weather, the commemorative event that was due to take place this morning in honour of Maestro Joseph Vella, has been postponed to Saturday, the 9th of March.
As previously planned, the La Stella Band will play band marches in honour of Mro Vella, who passed away on the 25th of February last year, departing from the Astra Theatre at 10am to the Villa Rundle Gardens in Victoria, where the commemorative event continues.
The event will open at 10.30am with an introduction by Peter Ciantar. This will be followed by a programme of speeches, with excerpts from Mro Vella’s chamber works.
The Minister for Gozo Dr Justyne Caruana will then unveil a bust in honour of Professor Joseph Vella. The bust is the work of Maltese sculptor Joseph Scerri.
This commemorative event is being organised by the Ministry for Gozo with the participation of the La Stella Philharmonic Society.
