World War I - a con­cert with words and mu­sic

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

On Wed­nes­day 26th Oc­to­ber at St. Paul’s Angli­can Cathe­dral, the Un­der the Spire Group will present “WWI - A con­cert with words and mu­sic”, the sec­ond con­cert of a se­ries which evokes WW1 in con­tem­po­rary po­etry, de­scrip­tive prose, and pop­u­lar and clas­si­cal mu­sic.

The first con­cert in 2014 jour­neyed from the out­break of war with its op­ti­mism and pa­tri­o­tism, to the re­al­iza­tion that the war would not be over “be­fore the leaves fall from the trees”.

This sec­ond con­cert takes us from the Somme to Gal­lipoli and Malta, nurse of the Mediter­ranean, from fury and de­spair, to the many in­stances of the tri­umph of the hu­man spirit in the face of un­prece­dented suf­fer­ing.

Among those tak­ing part are Alex Vella Gre­gory, Sarah Spi­teri and Jaqui Porter.

The event at St. Paul’s Angli­can Cathe­dral starts at 8pm and is pre­sented in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Teatru Ma­noel.

Tick­ets can be ob­tained from www.teatru­ma­, book­ings@teatru­ma­, 2124 6389 or at the Cathe­dral door on the evening. Pro­ceeds will be for the main­te­nance of St Paul’s Cathe­dral: The Angli­can Chap­laincy in Malta & Gozo.
