Following the success of the second edition of the concert ‘The Prayer’, organized by Blue Circle Events and Aldo Busuttil, a new Christmas concert with a difference will be organized this year. When the lyrical singer was preparing material for his new album ‘Con Amore’ he got the idea of including other songs synonymous with the Christmas festivities. As the name of the album and the fourteen tracks imply, Christmas is the time to celebrate and spread the love The Lord Himself has shown us when he come amongst us as a human being.

The concert ‘Con Amore on Christmas’ will not only include traditional Christmas songs but also various songs starting from the Operatic and Neapolitan repertoire and modern day songs. From Naples we will listen to the Tarantella, and a collection of popular songs, which will certainly bring a smile to your face under the direction of Mro. Manoel Pirotta with the participation of the ‘La Voix’ choir under the direction of Mro. Joseph Chircop. Also from Naples we will hear a rendition of ‘O Sole Mio’ during which Aldo Busuttil will interpret the version ‘It’s Now or Never’ in honor of the legendary Elvis Presley on the eightieth anniversary of his career.

The Christmas songs will get the audience in the mood for this wonderful time of year and will include Mro. Pirotta's classical adaptation to the popular song ‘Santa Clause is Coming to Town’.  Other popular numbers include  Do Hear The People Sing’ from the musical ‘Les Miserables’, Mamma and Parlami D’Amore Mariu.

Other highlights will include various duets with guest artists Gaia Cauchi, Eleanor Cassar and Karl Luke Schembri who together with Aldo Busuttil will interpret Un Amore Cosi Grande, In Amore, Vivo Per Lei and Caro Gesu Bambino. We urge you to stay tuned to even through Facebook and Twitter for more of the latest news from the local music industry.

As the curtain rose on the stage of the Ariston Theatre, RAI was one of the headlining broadcasters in support of the Eurovision Song Contest with Emma Marrone, the public choice in Malta giving a spirited performance of her entry La Mia Città. Nevertheless, as the sun sets on another extravagant edition, this time won by Austria and Conhita Wurst, with the Bond-esque Rise Like a Phoenix, we thought of seeing what happened at Sanremo Junior.

Sanremo Junior has always been a date of note in the diaries of Europe’s younger performers. A competition for participants aged 6-15, this prestigious festival has encompassed the dreams of so many young performers over the past 5 years. This year, Malta was represented by 5 wonderfully talented performers:

Destiny Chukunyere (coached by Ms. Maria Abdilla)

Karl Luke Schembri (coached by Soprano Antoinette Miggiani / Ms. Claire McCartin)

Kylie Meilak (Gillian Attard of La Voix Academy)

Sebastian Calleja (vocal coach: Glen Vella)

Laetitia Amodio (coached by her mother Ms. Charmaine Amodio)

And success was at hand! Destiny Chukunyere walked out supreme as the Overall Grand Prix Singers Winner and Laetitia Amodio was crowned the Overall Grand Prix Musicians Winner! Furthermore, Karl Luke Schembri was placed first in the 13-15 Section! Kylie Meilak and Sebastian Calleja also put in strong performances that they can come home feeling proud over!

This year the event – under UNICEF patronage – followed a central topic focusing on protecting children’s rights. Malta were competing against participants from all over Europe, including: Belarus, Italy, Israel, Romania and Russia.We urge you to stay tuned to even on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news from the local music scene.
