Special Songs for theChristmas Season
Soprano Andriana Yordanova will be giving a performance at a lunchtime concert at the Oratory of St. Francis in Republic Street, Valletta on the 30th December 2014 at 12:30pm. The concert will be focusing on celebration of the Christmas Season through music and song!
The voice and piano concert will feature a number of sparkling and vivacious songs from the pens of Weill Kurt, Kabalewsky and Herbert Victor Art is calling for me which is the Prima Donna song from "The Enchantress" these works will be premiered in Malta during this concert. Tchaikovskys Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy will also be performed.
The baroque Oratory was originally the friars refectory. Over the years, it had been transformed into an Oratory, hence it is beautifully adorned by magnificent baroque paintings, an elaborate gilded altarpiece and quaint monks benches. The oratory is usually closed to the public and the lunchtime concerts are a wonderful way to visit and enjoy the beautiful chapel. Presently it is hosting weekly music recitals every Tuesday, providing a platform for some of the best musicians performing on the island.
The concerts are also fund raising events in aid of the Franciscan Church, which is undergoing restoration. Tickets for the lunchtime concerts, costing 8 euro, can be obtained from the venue itself half an hour before the concert begins. For more details phone 7968 0952 or email: baroccomalta@gmail.
