BOV hosts the BOV Joseph Calleja Chil­dren’s Choir

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

This year’s re­cep­tion hosted by Bank of Val­letta for the mem­bers of the BOV Joseph Calleja Chil­dren’s Choir was held at Xara Lodge, on the out­skirts of Ra­bat.

Al­though the youngest per­form­ers to fea­ture in the Maltese Tenor’s 20th An­niver­sary Con­cert, the mem­bers of the Choir were a con­stant pres­ence on stage, ac­com­pa­ny­ing Joseph Calleja and his spe­cial guests, in­clud­ing the in­ter­na­tion­ally-renowned An­drea Bo­celli.

So­prano and Choir Di­rec­tor Gil­lian Zam­mit, as well as Destiny Chukun­yere, were also at the event. The chil­dren were each pre­sented with a com­mem­o­ra­tive photo of a spe­cial mo­ment dur­ing the con­cert, com­plete in a spe­cially de­signed folder for safe-keep­ing. Al­though the ex­pe­ri­ence it­self was a mem­o­rable one, this ges­ture was a to­ken of ap­pre­ci­a­tion on the part of Bank of Val­letta for the com­mit­ment shown by the chil­dren and their par­ents.

Al­though he could not be present in per­son on the day, due to other com­mit­ments, Joseph Calleja left the chil­dren a per­son­alised video mes­sage which was aired dur­ing the re­cep­tion. An­other mes­sage was left by An­drea Bo­celli him­self. Both artists con­grat­u­lated the mem­bers of the choir on their ster­ling per­for­mance dur­ing the con­cert and thanked them for their con­tri­bu­tion.

The BOV Joseph Calleja Chil­dren’s Choir, founded by Joseph Calleja, has now been sup­ported by Bank of Val­letta for sev­eral years as part of its cor­po­rate re­spon­si­bil­ity to­wards the worlds of the per­form­ing arts and ed­u­ca­tion.
