Big Band Adventures – the annual June Annual Symphonic Concert by Nadur’s Mnarja Philharmonic Band, is taking place at St Peter and St Paul’s Square, Nadur, on Saturday, the 15th of June, starting at 9.00pm.
This popular concert is being organised by the Mnarja Philharmonic Society with the main collaboration of the Ministry for Gozo cultural funding scheme, the Nadur Local council and supported by J. Portelli Projects and Karkanja Property Development.
The Mnarja Band has been performing this spectacular concert for the last 27-years, and it said, has been introducing new repertoire and music arrangements every year.
“Mnarja Band boasts also of being one of the most sought after bands in Gozo to perform nearly in every village in Gozo through its colourful concerts,” it said.
Musical arrangements from Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Beethoven, Queen, medley of Rossini, Strauss, Coldplay, Rock’n Roll medley, popular songs of 1960s, Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac, and other musical arrangements “never performed on Gozitan soils by local bands,” will all be included in the programme for the evening.
The grand finale of the concert will include a spectacular synchronised fireworks show with live music. Mnarja Band will be under the direction of its Music Director Mro Dr. Joseph Grech and will include guest singers Jolene Samhan, Neville Refalo, Denise Mercieca, Sarah Bonnici, as well as Cash and Band.
The general public is invited to attend and entrance is free of charge.
