APS Bank Concert
9th November 2012 cyber

Date Friday 9 November 2012
Venue St. John’s Co-Cathedral
Time 19:30 hrs

Over the years, sacred music has attracted the attention of Maltese composers and musicians so much so that, at least up to the middle of the 20th century, it occupied the central place in the development of music in Malta to the almost total exclusion of other genres with the partial exception of opera composition.   The idea of bringing to light sacred music composed by renowned Maltese composers as part of the Bank’s corporate responsibility was an opportunity not to be missed.

Initially, the Bank undertook a pioneering four-year (2001 to 2004) project, comprising of an annual flagship concert of short sacred pieces, many of them revivals, by composers of the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries. 11 years down the line, the yearly appointment still holds.
