Tuesday 24th March 2015
Soprano Andriana Yordanova will be giving a performance at a lunchtime concert at the Oratory of St. Francis in Republic Street, Valletta on the 24th March 2015 at 12:30pm. The concert will be focusing on arias composed by the renowned operatic composer Giuseppe Verdi.
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.
