Malta Philharmonic Orchestra Valletta 2018 Tour

The EUFSC has a very vast portfolio of projects and events which were organized in Malta and abroad, with an extensive calendar especially during the past three years.  

As a valuable stakeholder of the foreign community in Malta, we are ready to collaborate on any of our planned future projects being organized in Malta and abroad. 

We work and partner with many cultural communities, centres, Embassies of different countries represented in Malta, governmental establishments like Mediterranean Conference Centre, Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, Malta Tourism Authority and many others. 

We would like to draw your attention to our big and important project – the MPO Valletta 2018 Tour to the USA in November-December 2018. 

From Nov 27 to Dec 1, the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) embarks on the MPO Valletta 2018 Tour across the USA as part of celebratory activities connected with its 50th anniversary and highlighting the status of Valletta being the European Capital of Culture 2018. 

The project is initiated and implemented by the European Foundation for Support of Culture and endorsed by the Valletta 2018 Foundation. 

The tour program includes performances in the following concert halls and cities: Philadelphia’s renowned Kimmel Centre for the Performing Arts on 27 November; the Music Centre at Strathmore, in the Washington D.C. suburb of North Bethesda on 29 November and Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage in New York City on 1 December. 

The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra will be led by the famous conductor Sergey Smbatyan, honored artist of the Republic of Armenia, who frequently appears with MPO nowadays. 

Each concert will be opened with a performance of Rebbieħa, a symphonic poem penned by Gozitan composer Joseph Vella. The MPO will go on playing the work of famous modern American-Maltese composer Alexey Shor - Travel Notebook, concerto for piano and orchestra, with Austrian pianist Ingolf Wunder (prize-winner of many international competitions, Deutsche Grammophon artist) as a soloist, before rounding off its concerts with Dmitri Shostakovich’s famous Fifth Symphony.

This concert is not presented by Strathmore.
