Girgenti Palace to open its doors to the public – first edition of ‘A Night at the Palace’ concert

Dr Lydia Abela, the Prime Minister’s wife, has launched the first edition of ‘A Night at the Palace’ concert which is to be held on Wednesday 22 July from 8.30 p.m.

On this occasion, the splendid Girgenti Palace will be opening its doors to the public.

Dr Abela stated that together with the Prime Minister and their daughter Georgia Mae, she is looking forward to welcoming Maltese and Gozitan families to this art and culture experience by the National Philharmonic Orchestra and internationally renowned Maestro Wayne Marshall.

“Music has no colours; on the contrary, it unites and generates a sense of serenity and peace. The theme ‘A Night at the Palace’ brings out the beauty of this memorable evening for all those attending.”

National Philharmonic Orchestra Chairperson Sigmund Mifsud pointed out that ‘A Night at the Palace’ will be the first concert with the participation of all members of the orchestra after Covid-19.

Maestro Mifsud added that he is very enthusiastic about this new project which will present a special event by linking opera with the world of musicals.

Whilst entrance is free, the concert organisers will ask for donations to raise funds for organisations working for animal rights and welfare.

Tickets for this concert can be collected on Monday and Tuesday from the Office of the Prime Minister between 9.00 a.m. and 12 noon.

Meanwhile, Dr Abela added that this concert will not be the one and only event she will be involved in, and she expects to announce a number of innovative initiatives in the coming days to unite the people with just causes for the country.
