Opera vs Pop

  • 2 August, 12AM till 12:00AM
  • Ministry for Gozo Courtyard


Ever since its inception in 2002, The Gozo Youth Wind Band & Orchestra, consisting of two (2) separate groups of young and promising musicians, have been entertaining the general public with a wide range of stylistic repertoire to the enjoyment of all age-groups. Hailing from all over Gozo (and enriched with proficient guest musicians including foreign residents residing on the island), these young musicians meet regularly to prepare a wide spectrum of musical genre to be performed in various high-caliber events held from time to time in Gozo and Malta.

The whole concept behind this project, (originating after a successful tour by The Derbyshire City & County Youth Wind Band & Orchestra in 2001), besides creating the opportunity to young talented musicians perform in the collective manner, is to create a new approach to concert performances by nearly-similar ensembles and strives to explore new/innovative aspects of presenting its performances.
