A choir from the United Kingdom will be performing as part commemorations of the 29th anniversary of Pope Saint John Paul II’s visit to Malta and Gozo.

The Brecon Cathedral Choir from Wales is set to perform two concerts, the first on Monday at 7.30PM at St. Anthony of Padua Church Għajnsielem, Gozo and the second on Tuesday at 7.00pm at the Our Lady of Sorrow Parish Church St. Paul’s Bay in Malta.

The choir is understood to have been set up in 2003 and is made up of between 14 and 18 choristers. Among them are performers between the ages of 8 and 13, who sing the Soprano or Treble. The youth of the choir are also joined by adults and teens who provide the alto, tenor and bass of the choir. They are referred to as Lay Clerks and Choral Scholars.

A spokesperson for the JP2 Foundation explained that the commemoration this year prepares the ground for next year’s celebration of the Centenary of Pope John Paul’s birth and his 30th anniversary of his visit to the Maltese islands.

The public is invited to attend. You can also view the poster for the event here
