One of the most anticipated seasons within a year is surely summer especially when it comes to speaking about music in general with a number of events headlining the towns and villages in Malta. It is actually a particular period when people of all types come about together to celebrate their love of art and culture. One of these events is the concert of world renowned Maltese tenor, Joseph Calleja, one which has been taking place on the Granaries in Floriana every year since 2008.

This years' concert will definitely follow in the footsteps of the predecessing years noting that Calleja has been headlining these events along with special guest stars in the form of Dionne Warwick and Riccardo Cocciante last year and Michael Bolton the year before. In the meantime, local stars such as Raquela and Chiara have also performed with him during the same aforementioned concert. Moving onto the present though, many people have been getting ecstatically excited about the two names this year with Hayley Westerna and Lucio Dalla are set to make foot onto the stage and perform in Malta for the very first time.

The Soprano Hayley Westerna is actually one of the worlds' leading sopranos taking her home nation of New Zealand by storm before becoming somewhat of a global sensation releasing her debut material entitled 'Pure' at just sixteen (16) years of age managing to reach double platinum and holding the record for the fastest selling debut album from a classical artiste, making it to the top 10 in the pop charts of 11 countries. She has continuously managed to sell more than four million of her albums. Joining her is the Italian sensation Lucio Dalla who is a true icon for Italian music and for the classical genre in general. He has released numerous singles including 'Attenti all’Lupo', 'Com’e` Profondo ‘l Mare' and 'L’Anno Che Verra' amongst others but what he is famed for is the song 'Caruso' which has sold more than nine million copies in total.

This will surely be a concert which many will be wishing to attend and therefore, we have been in touch with the promotional director for NNG Promotions namely Anton Attard with regards to a competition for our readers and I can exclusively announced that we have six general standing tickets to giveaway to the people who can answer this question correctly:
