Christmas at the Priory

Candlelit Carols sung by the VOCA Choir at St Mark’s Church followed by Special Christmas Dinner in the Cloister of the Rabat Priory.

The scintillating VOCA choir will open the evening with a repertoire of Christmas music at St. Mark’s Church, built in 1558 by Girolamo Cassar. Following the concert, guests will be invited to continue the evening in the cloister surrounding the central courtyard of the Priory built by Andrea Belli in 1740.

Welcome drinks and canapes will be served on arrival and a three-course Christmas meal, inclusive of coffee, wine and water, prepared by Osborne Caterers will then be served in the cloister. The evening will be given a Swedish twist in celebration of Santa Lucija.

The Pianist International Tour of Maurizio Mastrini

The Pianist International Tour at the release of the new album by Maurizio Mastrini "The Pianist".

Through a musical programme of one hour and a half, the Maestro brings the audience in direct connection with his art, performing the compositions that made him famous.

He will play minimalist pieces, he will fuse latin jazz with impressive technical virtuosities, without forgetting his music in reverse. The 2015 tour is following the strong international mark of the previous editions and his stages are cleverly chosen to represent in a magnificient way the extraordinary genius and creative talent of the Maestro.

The concert in Malta is one of the first stops of The Pianist International Tour of Maurizio Mastrini.
