The choral event “Trail of Voices” was successfully presented by the Ministry for Gozo on Sunday 30th December 2018 from 7.00pm till 9.00pm. This event featured a number of Gozitan choirs each giving four short concerts in different venues around Victoria every half hour.
Chorus Urbanus was assigned to the centrally located chapel of St. Sabina, a few metres away from the Main Square in Victoria. Chorus Urbanus was accompanied by the Urbanus Junior Choir. The Choir was under the musical direction of Mro. Dr. John Galea.
The Choir performed a number of Christmas carols from its repertoire, some of which were performed during the recent Christmas Concert by the Choir at St. George’s Basilica. Also taking part were a number of soloists, mainly Hilda Grima, Noel Galea, Mario Portelli, Angelo Muscat and Ruth Portelli. Soloists from the Junior Section also performed in “Caro Gesu Bambino”. The Juniors were under the direction of Ms Maureen Zerafa.
The Minister for Gozo, Dr Justyne Caruana attended for the opening concert. It could be noted that this project was a successful one. All concerts were well attended and this would offer encouragement to the Ministry to organize further similar events in the future.
