The Medina Foundation for Music and the St Paul’s Chamber Ensemble have launched a campaign on the ZAAR crowdfunding platform to raise funds for their upcoming charity event as well as their 2018-19 concerts programme.

Held at St John’s Co Cathedral in Valletta on Friday 16th March 2018, the event will premier the new composition ‘Messa da Requiem’ by Mro Mark Agius. Furthermore, it will also feature the Polish Rotondo Choir, under the direction of Ms Natalia Anna Sobkowiak, who will travel to Malta from Poznan especially for the occasion.

“We are delighted to be crowdfunding not only to support this important philanthropic initiative but also to seek partners to support all our projects for 2018. With their help, we can continue to encourage professional musical development in Malta, and to cultivate cross-cultural creativity, innovation and excellence, especially in Valletta’s year as European Capital of Culture,” says Mro Agius.

“The St Paul Chamber Ensemble is fast becoming one of Malta’s foremost musical ensembles, bringing together some of the finest musicians and singers our island has to offer, and with a very full concert programme of the highest calibre,” he adds. Whilst all proceeds from the ‘Messa da Requiem’ event are to be donated to Dar tal-Providenza, the Medina Foundation followed the recommendation of the Malta Arts Council to crowdfund for the total of €5,000 required, to cover the costs of rehearsal venues and the various logistics required to realise the performances throughout their 2018-19 programme.
