Cen­tral Bank or­gan­ises con­cert at St Vin­cent de Paul Res­i­dence

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

As part of its 50th An­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions, the Cen­tral Bank of Malta or­gan­ised on Wed­nes­day 9 May a con­cert at St Vin­cent de Paul Res­i­dence.

The brass sec­tion of the Malta Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra played pop­u­lar tunes with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of singer Daniel Cauchi, and took the el­derly au­di­ence down mem­ory lane.

The con­cert was at­tended by the Gover­nor of the Cen­tral Bank of Malta who un­der­lined the Bank’s con­cern with the so­cial and eco­nomic con­se­quences of an age­ing pop­u­la­tion. Par­lia­men­tary Sec­re­tary for Per­sons with Dis­abil­ity and Ac­tive Age­ing Hon An­thony Agius De­celis, in a brief in­tro­duc­tory ad­dress, em­pha­sized the im­por­tance of qual­ity of life for se­nior ci­ti­zens. Cul­ture is an el­e­ment of ac­tive age­ing.

The Cen­tral Bank of Malta sup­ports the Malta Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra through a cor­po­rate agree­ment that helps the or­ches­tra pur­chase mu­si­cal in­stru­ments and the Or­ches­tra’s in­tern­ship pro­gramme. This pro­gramme gives promis­ing young mu­si­cians the op­por­tu­nity to pre­pare for a ca­reer in mu­sic, and join the Malta Youth Or­ches­tra.
