TIME: 8:00 PM till 10:00 PM
The Victoria International Arts Festival, featuring five weeks of classical music concerts, will be once more bookended by two performances by the MPO.
Traditionally, these concerts were conducted by the festival’s long-standing artistic director, Joseph Vella, whose recent passing left Malta’s music world in shock. Philip Walsh will now be taking over the baton, but he will be performing the programme selected by Mro Vella. The festival, fittingly, is being dedicated to him.
The opening concert, which will be held at the Teatru Astra, will feature works by Richard Strauss and Johannes Brahms.
LOCATION: St George Basilica, Victoria, Gozo
