Feel the Magic represents a strong three-year vision that seeks to place the arts and creativity at the heart of Gozo's future. The project supports the implementation of a series of high-profile concerts in collaboration with international and national organizations and aims to develop a co-ordinated yearly programme of events. So far the series has featured two hugely successful Feel the Magic concerts: Feel the Magic of Brass and Feel the Magic of Piazzolla.
