Watch: The MPO’s ‘Chamber Fridays’ to bring classical music into homes

The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra has announced ‘Chamber Fridays’, a series of online recitals featuring musicians from Malta’s national musical ensemble.

Set in various locations around Malta, including the Robert Samut Hall – the orchestra’s home, the concerts seek to convey music to audiences through digital media platforms.

Starting on Friday 15th May 2020, and featuring chamber formations in a wide array of musical works, the concerts will be aired every Friday at 7.00 pm CET.

MPO Executive Chairman Sigmund Mifsud underlined how the project will “showcase the charm of classical music directly to homes”.

This initiative forms part of the MPO’s online programme as the orchestra diversifies its music-making in view of COVID-19. #MPOTuesdays stream works performed by the orchestra in recent concert seasons whereas Thursdays are dedicated to features on a classical music, tackling a wide array of subject-matters. In addition, on Sundays, mini-biographies of some of the orchestra’s pioneering figures are re-presented.
