The Gaulitanus Choir returns to the musical scene this month by presenting an atypical, yet very topical, concert: World War I in Music ( … and Words). Commemorating the 100th anniversary since the beginning of World War I, the concert presents several musical excerpts – ranging from the classical to the semi-classical – which were composed during the Great War years (1914-18) and which were very much associated with the war. The excerpts are composed by British or American composers – whether by great names such as Edward Elgar or rather unknown names such as Alfred Solman.
As usual artistically directed by Gaulitanus founder-director Colin Attard the concert will feature the Gaulitanus Choir and a number of its soloists, namely Terry Shaw, Marthese Borg, Annabelle Zammit, Stephanie Portelli Sultana, Patricia Buttigieg, Josianne Callus, and Francesca Sciberras together with reciter Rob Ricards. Colin Attard and Stephen Attard will accompany on the piano.
The concert is being held at the Gozo Ministry, Victoria, on Saturday, 22nd November at 19.30 hrs. Entrance is free.
