Silvio Zammit is a brilliant flautist with over 25 years of experience in flute performance and teaching. Together with his piano accompanist, Ramona Zammit Formosa, he will be performing an excellent repertoire of flute music.
The venue, 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 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.
The events are fund raising events for the Franciscan Church, which is undergoing extensive structural 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.
