The Gaulitanus Choir will have a two-fold involvement in this year’s edition of Lejlet Lapsi: Notte Gozitana. The choir will not only be giving a concert itself at Savina Church, Sabina Square, Victoria on Saturday 4th June at 20.15hrs but will also be hosting a British choir for this occasion. Indeed the Wooburn Singers will be giving a lunchtime concert at St. James Church, Independence Square, Victoria on the same day at 12.00hrs.

The 35-strong choir directed by Greg Beardsell will interpret a cappella works ranging from the Renassaince to the contemporary. This choral group will vary their performance by initially singing a few secular numbers on the church’s parvis and then other sacred numbers in the church itself.
