As it is customary that the JP2 Foundation will hold an Easter Concert during the first week following Easter.  After the absence of two years, the JP2 Foundation is hosting an English Choir from North Yorkshire. The St. JOHN the BAPTIST CHOIR will perform two concerts. The first one will be on Thursday 21st April 2022 at the Immaculate Conception Parish Church Bormla, starting at 7.00pm while the second concert will take place on Friday 22nd April 2022 at the Nativity of Our Lady Basilica Church Xaghra, starting at 7.30pm

The Choir of St John the Baptist Church comes from Knaresborough, a historical market town in the county of North Yorkshire in England. The choir has a long choral tradition, with a reputation for excellence and welcomes singers of all ages and genders. As well as singing, the regular service at St John’s each week the choir has sung services in most UK Cathedrals and several prestigious Cathedral overseas. Most recently, St John’s were the first visiting choir to sing at York Minster following the pandemic, following which the Precentor of York Minster wrote:

“It was a great delight for us to welcome you and hear such an assured and confident choir who led our worship with dignity, skill and sensitivity. Thanks also to your Organist who was splendid! We would have no hesitation in recommending you to other cathedrals!”.

St. John’s Choir is directed by Mark Hunter FGMS and their Organist is James Lonsdale FRCO. During their long awaited tour to Malta, the choir will perform recitals of sacred music from a variety of periods based around the seasons of the church’s year.

Peress li hija drawwa li l-Fondazzjoni JP2 torganizza Kunċert tal-Għid matul l-ewwel ġimgħa ta’ wara l-Għid. Wara n-nuqqas ta’ sentejn, il-Fondazzjoni JP2 qed tospita Kor Ingliż minn North Yorkshire. Il-KOR ‘St. JOHN the BAPTIST’ ser jagħmel żewġ kunċerti. L-ewwel wieħed se jkun nhar il-Ħamis 21 ta’ April 2022 fil-Knisja Parrokkjali tal-Immakulata Kunċizzjoni f’Bormla, li jibda fis-7.00pm filwaqt li t-tieni kunċert se jsir nhar il-Ġimgħa 22 ta’ April 2022 fil-Knisja Bażilika taN-Nattivita tal-Madonna fix-Xagħra, li jibda fis-7.30pm.

Il-Kor tal-Knisja ta’ San Ġwann Battista ġej minn Knaresborough, belt storika tas-suq fil-kontea ta’ North Yorkshire fl-Ingilterra. Il-kor għandu tradizzjoni korali twila, b’reputazzjoni ta’ eċċellenza u jilqa’ kantanti ta’ kull età u sess. Minbarra l-kant, is-servizz regolari f’San Ġwann kull ġimgħa l-kor kanta servizzi fil-biċċa l-kbira tal-Katidral tar-Renju Unit u f’diversi Katidral prestiġjuż barra minn xtutna. L-aktar reċentement, St John’s kienu l-ewwel kor viżitatur li ikanta f’York Minster wara l-pandemija, u warajha l-Precentor of York Minster kiteb:

“Kien ta’ pjaċir kbir għalina li nilqgħuk u nisimgħu kor daqstant assigurat u kunfidenti li mexxa l-qima tagħna b’dinjità, ħila u sensittività. Grazzi wkoll lill-Organista tiegħek li kien mill-isbaħ! Ma kienx ikollna lura milli nirrakkomandawkom f’katidrali oħra. !”

Il-Kor ta’ San Ġwann huwa mmexxi minn Mark Hunter FGMS u l-Organist tagħhom huwa James Lonsdale FRCO. Matul il-mawra tant mistennija tagħhom f’Malta, il-kor se jesegwixxi mużika sagra minn varjetà ta’ perjodi bbażati madwar l-istaġuni tas-sena tal-knisja.
