Michael Aquilina

Director of Operations

Prior to joining the MPO, what did it represent to you? 

Prior to joining the orchestra, the MPO was an entity that offered musical initiatives for a variety of people.

In fact, I witnessed its development from the National Orchestra to the present Malta Philharmonic Orchestra – similar to experiencing a person’s growth from childhood to becoming an adult.

Can you delineate your role within the orchestra? 

Within the MPO I oversee the operational aspects of the Orchestra including the logistics of all concerts and performances.

What do you cherish most from the MPO’s concerts? 

The end result – when all the team’s efforts are reflected in the high level of performance given by the musicians and mirrored in the positive reactions of the audience.

How would you describe music? 

Music is a live and dynamic aspect of a person’s life. It offers you an alternative way forward, both in calm as well as difficult moments.
