A family rock orchestral Christmas show with a difference

Following a hugely successful nights with the rock orchestral concerts of "QUEEN meets COLDPLAY" and "Not Just . . .The WALL", The Gozo Youth Orchestra under the direction of Mro Joseph Grech and 7SPP, with the support of Festivals Malta and Christmas in Gozo, now bring a totally new rock orchestral production to the Teatru Astra in Victoria, Gozo. On 27 December and for one performance only, they will present " Christmas Rocks the Astra and THE BEATLES", second edition. It will be our second time experience, of this legendary venue, for a number of the performers.


This time the orchestra will be joined by the "CASH & Band". Also joining them on stage will be a number of accomplished soloists. Very well-known and respected local musicians and vocalists, Danny Magro (guitar), Kurt Cassar, Ludwig Galea, Cheryl Balzan and Sarah Bonnici. The Gozo Community Choir and Piccole Stelle Choir will also take part. The concert will consist of classic Beatles numbers and some well-known Festive classics, which will get a little rock treatment. The objective of the producers is to get the Christmas Season rolling with a Christmas party atmosphere. The audience will be actively encouraged to join in on all the classic choruses. It's a concert that all the family can enjoy. Try not to miss it.
