Mro. Colin Attard – artistic director of Gozo’s Gaulitana: A Festival of Music – has just returned from Italy where he was a member of the adjudicating board at the 9th Concorso Val di Sole, held at Dimaro in Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy.
The Concorso was based at the Teatro Comunale in Dimaro, a very multi-functional space which adorns this picturesque locality in the Val di Sole valley at the foothills of the Brenta Dolomites.
Mro Attard’s fellow adjudicators were renowned Italian concert pianist and long-standing teacher at Verona’s Conservatory, Sabrina Reale, piano-accordion specialist and didactic Michele Chiusole, and baritone Lorenzo Muzzi. The board was chaired by Mro Fricelli.
The trip came about from a collaboration between Gaulitana and the Concorso, whose artistic director, Mro Giuseppe Fricelli, has been a regular in Gaulitana for several years and with whom various collaborations were envisaged.
