A Guitarist for the Eurovision Young Musician

Next week, Malta’s delegations taking part in Eurovision Young Musicians will head to Cologne. For the first time Malta will be taking part in this festival dedicated to musicians. Malta is going to be  represented by the guitarist Kurt Aquilina.

The semi-finals will be held on Monday 26th and Tuesday 27th at 14:00.  Malta will be participating in Monday’s semi-final and both of them are going to be live streamed on

The final of this festival will take place on Saturday 31st May and it is going to be transmitted on TVM at 8:50pm,

“I’m really excited for the event and looking forward to it” says Kurt, who has played the guitar since he was 11 years old. Now aged 18, the young man from Paola is busy getting ready for his performances in Cologne. “I’m practicing all day and night” he adds.

Kurt will have to make very sure of one thing before flying to Cologne – that he doesn’t forget his guitar! But will anything else important be going in his suitcase? “I will definitely pack my large headphones and my music player in my suitcase I can’t stay a minute without them really!
