Voluntary organizations which take care of abandoned animals will be the beneficiaries of donations which will be collected in another edition of the concert Classics Under the Stars. Girgenti Palace, which serves as the residence of the Prime Miniser, will once again opens its doors for an evening of music during this concert to be held on 26 July.
Organized by the Office of the Prime Minister, Mrs Michelle Muscat explained that this concert is free but that the donations which will be collected will go towards helping NGOs which work with animals.
“Let us think of those who do not have a voice, animals, and those sanctuaries for abandoned dogs which also need a certain amount of funds. We hope this concert will bring some happiness during these lovely days of summer at the Girgenti Palace, which is open to all.”
Classics Unders the Stars under the direction of Maestro Michael Laus will close the season of the National Philharmonic Orchestra. Mrs Laus said that the guest singers will be tenor Cliff Zammit Stevens and baritone Miguel Rosaris.
“We will be playing music which while considered classic, is also accessible to all, such as the waltzes of Johann Strauss, excerpts form the operetta The Merry Widow and even Spanish music which we know is very attractive and colourful,” he said.
There are 1,200 tickets available for the Girgenti concert, which can be collected from the OPM in St Paul’s Street, Valletta.
