Sacred Arias

Wonderful Maltese soprano Marita Bezzina will be giving a sparkling performance at a lunchtime concert on Tuesday the 7th March 2017 at the Oratory of St Francis in Valletta at 12:30pm. 


The concert will feature some of the worlds most appealing sacred arias ever composed that are always so popular by music lovers.  The programme features some of the sopranos favourite arias which include Alessandro Stradellas powerful aria Pieta` Signore; Gounods profound O Divine Redeemer; and Mascagnis Ave Maria.  The programme ensues with Caccinis endearing and popular Ave Maria followed by Verdis La Vergine degli Angeli from his opera La Forza del Destino.  The final arias of the performance will be Bachs reverent Jesu` Joy of Mans Desiring and Lloyd-Webbers Pie Jesu.

The soprano will be accompanied by the talented pianist Ramona Zammit Formosa who will perform a number of solo piano music.

The events are fund raising events for the Franciscan Church. 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:
