So, to celebrate that, we got in touch with local Soprano, Francesca Aquilina, who forms part of Dutch-based Opera Spanga’s latest production, AIDA – and which will be performed in Malta on 13 and 15 September at Pjazza Teatru Rjal.

Expat Tom Armitage will be taking place in the POW Ensemble’s concert and poetry recital from 20-22 June, at Maori in Valletta. Here is shares his experiences of moving to Malta. How did you get into music? My career started quite early at the age of 11 – delivering newspapers every morning on my bicycle for £14 a week in Hull, in England. Thankfully, my first meaningful musical experiences happened at the same time. I gave my first piano recital at 11 and, at age 13, I conducted my first compositions for orchestra.
