The Gaulitanus Choir will once again be presenting a concert on New Year’s Day. After having presented an End-of-Festive Season concert for several years, last year the choir opted to go for January 1st. Following last year’s big success, the date has been retained. Entitled A New Year’s Toast – 2, the concert will be held at the Gozo Ministry’s Hall, Victoria and starts at 19.30hrs. Entrance is free.
The Gaulitanus Choir, directed by its founder-director Colin Attard and accompanied by Stephen Attard, will present a varied repertoire chosen for this festive day. 4 Christmas Songs by Don Besig will be receiving their Malta premiere. Three rhythmic and bouncy numbers follow: Charles Rosen’s Christmas Gloria, David Willcocks’s A Birthday Carol and Alleluia! Gloria! from the musical ‘Jesus of Nazareth’ by Vann Trapp and Tom Fettke. The choir, including the soloists and a backing instrumental ensemble, will bring the concert to a truly festive ending with New Year’s Medley – 2, a medley of ever-popular Neapolitan songs.
Young up-and-coming violinist Pierre Louis Attard, back home for Yuletide from his studies in Scotland, will join the fray with some solo numbers.
The concert is being supported by the Gozo Cultural Office and Bank of Valletta.
