2019.11.16 Encore Leone Band in Concert Event Banner











TEATRU TAL-OPRA AURORA IS PROUD TO PRESENT
ITS VERY OWN LEONE BAND IN 
<<ENCORE!>>
THE ANNUAL SYMPHONIC CONCERT
DIRECTED BY COLIN ATTARD
ON SATURDAY NOVEMBER 16TH 2019.

November is always the time for the annual symphonic concert by the Leone Band, the rightful owner and manager of the Teatru tal-Opra Aurora. Way back, until the early nineties, the annual symphonic concert was one of the very few autumn open-air events on the island when, in true 19th century fashion, the band would rise on its wooden Italian-style band stand and perform to a mixed standing and seated audience. The last three decades, however, saw this annual concert becoming a staple indoor event, capitalising on the majestic environment and sumptuous acoustics provided by none other than the Aurora Opera House itself.

While the Leone Band retains its place as the foremost musical unit in sheer spectacle and contemporary band music, the November concert has always been a showcase of classical music and technical prowess. Therefore, the musical programme typically consists of popular classics and symphonic 19th and 20th century music.

This time round, the Leone Band is justified in reminiscing its latest, in a string of successful public appearances, when on Independence Day, 21st September 2019, it partook in a joint symphonic concert in the city's main square, aptly named Independence Square. Therefore, it is with the fondest and most cherished of memories that the Leone Band regales its supporters, as well as the general public who might not have had the good fortune to witness the September event, with 4 celebratory pieces:

Overture: I Cavalieri di Malta
Agostino Nani

First Suite for Band
Alfred Reed

Hungarian Rhapsody
Franz Liszt

1812 Solemn Overture
Pyotr Illich Tchaikovsky

Leone Band in Concert is held annually in commemoration of the proclamation of the Catholic Dogma of Faith of the Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven by Pope Pius XII (1950-2019).

The concert will be held on Saturday 16th November 2019, starting at 8:00PM. Expected duration: 75 minutes.

Entrance is free of charge and last minute seats are allocated freely. However, seat reservation is possible, and indeed recommended, by email on info@leone.org.mt or by sms 99130694.
