70th Birthday Celebratory Concert
This being the year of my 70th Birthday, many concerts of my music were held throughout the year both in Malta and abroad. I recall with pleasure the ones I did in Austria (3), in Italy (4) and in France (2). On the 23rd November I performed a large scale choral/orchestral concert at St John’s Cathedral which served as a befitting culmination of all my musical activities throughout the year. At St John’s I performed two of my major choral works, namely Domine Jesu Christe op 38 and Symphony No 3 – The Apocalypse Verses op 105. The concert was played to a very large appreciative audience. Participants included the Malta Phiolharmonic Orchestra (leader Marcelline Agius), and the Laudate Pueri Choir of St George’s Basilica (director Rev G.Frendo) . Solo parts were sung by Maria Frendo (soprano) and Cliff Zammit Stevens (tenor). The concert was extremely well received by the numerous patrons who were present.
