MALTA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra is Malta’s foremost professional musical institution. Under the helm of its current artistic director and principal conductor Brian Schembri, the orchestra has been striving for musical excellence by investing more intensively in a varied symphonic repertoire throughout its concert seasons. The orchestra is involved in opera productions in Malta and Gozo, community outreach programmes, concerts of a lighter musical genre as well as international concert tours. The MPO is also actively involved in education programmes on local television and radio, workshops and bespoke performances with programmes targeting children from a young age. For a number of years the orchestra has been collaborating with various entities in order to expose Maltese artists and composers both locally and abroad, and thanks to their collaboration with conductor Miran Vaupotić and the Valletta 2018 Foundation (the organizing body of the European Capital of Culture).
