One of the main events that the people are getting accustomed to is surely the Rockestra which was inaugurated last year to great success. The event is always organised in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund in order to help whoever is in need within the organisation of which the President of Malta, George Abela is the main patron. Last years’ event had a start studded line-up including two time Eurosong participant Raquela who has been having a sizzling career thus far having performing with world renowned artists Gigi D’Alessio and Joseph Calleja apart from rocking the MFCC stage with her 2009 Malta Eurosong entry “Cross Roads” as well as Claudia Faniello who will be scaling new heights in a couple of months with her new album out soon.
This years’ event will be bigger and better than last year actually with a whole variety of musical acts including former Eurosong participants Neville Refalo and Petra Zammit amongst others. The show which is set to take place on the 11th September 2010. All of the proceeds from the tickets will go directly to the Malta Community Chest Funds. The standing area of the event costs 10 Euro for adults and just 2 Euro for children whilst the seated area costs 15 Euro for adults. It will surely be an event to remembers. Speaking to conductor of the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra namely Sigmund Mifsud, he stated the the event features a great mixture of pop-rock along with the orchestra and is surely is scintillating event for all of the family.
