Malta: Voices Unite for a Good Cause

Rate this item
(0 votes)

The Maltese Islands are full of clear cut and beautiful voices which entertain the people all the year round through concerts, festivals and other musical showcases but one of the events in which the people flock in numbers to attend is surely "VOICES", a concert which features a 200-strong choir performing some of the worlds' most amazing hits but the best thing is that all proceeds from ticket sales go to charity.

This years' edition which is being held between the 6th and 10th October as well as the 13th and 17th October is being run under the title theme of "LISTEN TO THE MUSIC" as you can see in the logo above. This year there will be a repertoire of songs which includes Volare, Nessun Dorma, Hallelujah, Viva La Vida and Philadelphia Freedom amongst other surprises. Some of the performers in the show include well known artists such as Jackie Pace Delicata (Backing Vocalist with Thea Garrett), Raquela (Malta Eurosong 2009), Claire McCartin (Malta Eurosong 2010), Dorothy Bezzina (Malta Eurosong 2009, 2010) as well as Andrew Barberi and Gillian Portelli (Malta Eurosong 2009 as part of The Elements) amongst many other great singers who unite together through a great cause in their love of music.

Since the concert of "VOICES" began back in 1991, all of the people involved offer their time on a completely voluntary basis yet their talents have been witnessed by huge flock of people and thus proceedings from sales have amounted to a total of €1.2 million which in turn have been handed out to charities. Tickets for this years' edition costing between €15 and €25 have been on sale since 10 days ago and only a few remain. You can buy them either through www.voices.org.mt, the Mediterranean Conference Centre Booking Office as well as the Booking Office of the Manoel Theatre. I have managed to get my ticket but have you?

In the meantime, "VOICES" would also like to thank  its title sponsor, Vodafone Malta Foundation, as well as its other sponsors: The National Lotteries Good Causes Fund, Banif Bank, Island Caterers, Kinnie, Studio Seven, The Sound System, Actavis, NIU, Martini, Big Bon, San Michel and XFM Radio, the official radio station for Voices 2010.
