70th Anniversary Concert
70th UNESCO Anniversary Concert at Manoel Theatre
The 70th anniversary of UNESCO was celebrated with an orchestral concert at the Manoel Theatre, under the patronage of President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca. The concert took place on 3rd October at 11am. The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra gave an excellent performance under the direction of Brian Schembri.
To add to the local talent a special international guest artist was invited for the occasion. Soloist Sergei Nakariakov on trumpet and Flugelhorn, dubbed the Paganini of the trumpet, performed brilliantly and all present could appreciate his amazing talent and love for the instruments he plays.
Invitees were encouraged to give donations to Action for Breast Cancer Foundation which in turn were to be passed on to the Pink October Campaign being coordinated by JP Advertising. Action for Breast Cancer Foundation has shown its appreciation to Professor Henry Frendo, chairman of the Maltese National Commission for UNESCO and his committee for their support in the fight against breast cancer in Malta and Gozo.
