colin attard concorso lirico rubino

The artistic director of Gaulitana: A Festival of Music, Colin Attard, has just returned from the 3rd edition of the Concorso Internazionale di Canto Lirico Giovan Battista Rubini held at Romana di Lombardia (Bg), Italy, where he was a member of the festival’s jury. Mro Attard was the only foreigner on the jury alongside some very important personalities in Italy’s operatic sphere. These were Mro Fabrizio Carminati, one of Italy’s foremost conductors, Fabio Tartari, choirmaster at Bergamo’s Teatro Donizetti, Danilo Boaretto, director of Opera Click, Enrico Copedè director of the agency L’Opera, Edoardo Cavalli, artistic secretary at Bergamo’s Teatro Donizetti, mezzo-soprano Elena Bresciani, a member of the organizing committee, and baritone Marzio Giossi, the competition’s artistic director and chairperson of the jury.

While Mro Attard duly promoted the operatic performances being held in Gozo and Malta, Gaulitana: A Festival of Music established an important collaboration with the Concorso Lirico with one of the prizes being eventual participation in the forthcoming edition of festival.
