Gozo’s Gaulitanus Choir is presenting two concerts featuring Det Norske Sjoemannskor (The Norwegian Seamen Choir). The first concert will be held at the Gozo Cathedral, Victoria, on Thursday 2nd September at 19.15 hrs. A lunchtime concert follows the day after, Friday 3rd September, at 12.30 hrs at St. James’ Church, Merchants Street, Valletta, Malta.
The Norwegian choir will be presenting a variety of sacred works and will be conducted by Jarle Flemvaag with Erik Bergene accompanying on the accordion.
Both choirs are celebrating important anniversaries. While the Gozitan choir is celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Norwegian one is celebrating its 50th one. Indeed the latter have organized the Malta trip as a celebration of this big event.
Det Norske Sjoemannskor choir is well-known in Norway having appeared several times on radio and on TV. While they give around 20-25 performances every year, pride of place is reserved to the annual memorial church service in memory of those who lost their lives at sea.
Entrance for both the Gozo and Malta concerts is free.
