Gozo Youth Wind Band and Orchestra Trio of Events


As the Gozo Youth Wind Band and Orchestra commemorates its 20th anniversary, three large-scale events are planned for the coming months.

The orchestral rock concert From the Beatles to U2, previously held in Valletta in May, will now be produced in Gozo on October 30 at the Aurora Theater at 4pm.

The Gozo Youth Orchestra under the direction of its Founder and Music Director Maestro Joseph Grech will partner with Gozo’s Cash and Band with a 16 piece choir and solo singers.

In November, the orchestra will collaborate with The Helping Hand Group to present a gala performance of The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber on November 19 at 7:30 p.m.

This show will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Gozo Youth Wind Band and Orchestra and the 25th anniversary of the Helping Hands Group. A star-studded cast of solo musical theater singers includes Ludwig Galea, Dorothy Bezzina, Roger Tirazona, Lawrence Gray, Rachel Fabri, Neville Refalo and Francesca Power accompanied by Armita Azar. The GYO support choir and the children’s choir will be led by Dorothy Bezzina.

The band and orchestra wrap up their year-long series of events with a family show that wraps up the Christmas holiday season with another edition of Christmas Rocks the Astra now titled Festive Rock and Pop at the Astra.

The event will take place on January 6, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. at the Astra Theater. The Piccole Stelle Choir will also join.
