Sixty-five musicians will travel from Germany specially to perform in Malta. All musicians have diverse careers and include pilots, cabin crew, engineers, mechanics, finance executives, project managers and professional musicians amongst others. They join forces in this unique orchestra and it is their love for music that unites them all.
To make this night even more memorable, they will be joined on stage by local singer and Winter Moods frontman, Ivan Grech, and the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO). The evening’s musical programme shall include the most popular Beethoven 5th Symphony 1st Movement, Slavonic Dance in G minor by Dvorak, Hungarian Dance no. 6 in D Major by Brahms, the energetic rhythms of Huapango by Moncayo, and the English Folk Song Suite by Ralph Vaughan Williams.
A work by local composer John Galea, titled Three Mediterranean Portraits will also be performed, following the very successful German premier of this work in 2016 by the LHO in Frankfurt. For all those in love with musical themes from the film industry, there is also something in store and this concert will include several themes from the James Bond movies, together with the fantastic Pirates of the Caribbean theme. Ivan Grech will entertain the audience with a selection of songs that will surely have you singing away with us at this unique event hosted by the Lufthansa Orchester.
