Biennial Music Tour to Malta

The biennial Music Tour took place in Malta over February half term. We were treated to some fabulous weather and had plenty of sight-seeing opportunities including a visit to the smaller island of Gozo where we performed our first concert. Other visits included the medieval capital of Mdina where some of the early series of Game of Thrones was filmed and a brief exploration down into the ancient Roman catacombs in Rabat. We spent an enjoyable afternoon in the current capital, Valetta, soaking up the atmosphere of this charming city and, on the final day, we visited St Julian for a shopping trip and exploration of the marinas and coastal views.

Our first concert was well-received in St Lawrence, Gozo and the local congregation provided us with a hearty meal of pasta, pasta and pasta! The second concert in Sliema received a standing ovation and a presentation from the local priest thanking us for our performance. On Sunday morning we were invited to participate in Mass at St Publius, Floriana, and this was broadcast live on Maltese television.

The biennial Music tour was a great success musically, culturally and socially, and the pupils were superb ambassadors for King’s.
