The Gaulitanus Choir continued with its Christmas events by giving a carolling session at Arkadia on Sunday 21st December. The busy arcade was made livelier with the merry singing of the choir, which at times was joyfully joined by Father Christmas, thus creating a event more festive mood. (Vide www.arkadia.com.mt)

The choir fully now concentrates on its major upcoming event: the third edition of A New Year’s Toast. This annual concert is being held On January 1st at the Kempinski Hotel, San Lawrenz and starts at 19.45hrs. Entrance for the concert is free.
