The Gozo Youth Wind Band within the Gozo Youth Wind Band & Orchestra is currently preparing its annual concert, the Don Bosco Grand Concert 2020. As in previous years, the Gozo Youth Wind Band strives to introduce new arrangements in the local musical scene while keeping the evening varied and appealing to the general public, young and old. The concert comes to an end with the Don Bosco hymn.

As the case of The Youth Orchestra, The Gozo Youth Wind Band consists mainly of 50 Gozitan youths who after having pursued their musical studies both in Gozo and Malta on an individual basis, meet regularly to prepare an exciting and varied repertoire to be performed later on in concerts throughout the year. In fact this is the 18th year since the inception of these two ensembles.


It is worth mentioning that the Gozo Youth Orchestra will be presenting Not Just ... The Wall on 29 February at MCC Theatre, Valletta. Moreover, for the 13th year running Opera vs Pop Under the Stars will be held on Monday, 3 August and also the sixth edition of Stage and Proms on the Sea on Monday, 14 September. A new rock-orchestral concert will be held on 21 November at the Aurora Theatre as well as the third edition of Christmas Rocks the Astra in December.  

The Don Bosco Grand Concert will be held on Sunday, 2 February at 7pm at the Oratory Don Bosco Theatre, Victoria, Gozo. The Gozo Youth Wind Band will be under the direction of founder and music director Mro Dr Joseph Grech. Entrance is free and patrons are requested to be seated 15 minutes prior to the concert.
