Grand Priories of Italy and Malta hold Choir Festival (November 2012)
The Grand Priory of Malta, by means of the Saint Lazarus Foundation, teamed up with the Grand Priory of Italy and produced a three day Choir Festival including some of the best Italian Sacred Choirs. These included 'Cantori del Borgo', 'Corale Lauretania' and the 'Corale Polifonico Sant'Agata Al Carcere.'
The festival took place in the cities of Valletta, Zebbug and Victoria and funds were collected during the festival for the needs of the Fondazzjoni Kenn u Tama, which opened its Emmaus Home in Gozo, being the first shelter for women suffering from domestic violence on the island. The pictures above show the Mayors of the Capital Valletta and the city of Zebbug, both members of the Order, and the Chaplain of the Grand Priory of Gozo receiving donations on behalf of Emmaus Home.
Participation to all these events was hugely successful and the Grand Priory will be organising the festival on a yearly basis.
