The MPO closes this year’s edition of the APS Summer Festival, joining artists Gabriel Lia and Matthias Camilleri. 

Under the baton of Alan Chircop, the chamber ensemble performs a classic concert depicting the Mediterranean and echoing the sounds of this varied, culturally diverse region. Works from composers of different periods feature in a journey of discovery and dream as literary interludes provide a moment of reflection, juxtaposing the mystical nuances of the circus acts on a Chinese pole. 


LOCATION: Quadrangle, Univeristy of Malta
