Leone Goes Pop 7th edition

ENGLISCH: With football fever running high last weekend in Marsalforn, as Germany snatched the World Cup title from Argentina, this celebratory mood is set to return next Tuesday, 22nd July 2014 at 9pm, as the Leone Band repeats the 7th edition of Leone Goes Pop in Gozo’s most popular resort.

The 7th edition, put up for the first time in Victoria on 7th June was a resounding success. Hosted by the comic duo DANUSAN, it featured Chris Grech, Raquela and soprano Claire Caruana with the Leone Band, in a number of sung and unsung numbers that evoked the celebratory spirit of the then-approaching World Cup finals.  With the world’s largest sporting event now past, one can rest assured that the mood will be equally electrifying.

More importantly, this repeat performance will, for another year round, raise funds for the Puttinu Cares Foundation, which the Leone Band has supported since its first repeat performance of the Leone Goes Pop concert in 2009.

This Tuesday, July 22nd 2014, the public is encouraged to fly and sport its favourite nation’s colours once more – even if England and Italy, for the majority of fans, have long settled back on their home turf. With music from the repertoire of The Beatles, Mudugno, Santana, Bennato, Queen and Shakira – amongst others – the Leone Band pledges to get anyone (an avid fan or otherwise!) in the mood for a good post-World Cup party… and who knows? Perhaps a little Brazilian samba, or Argentine tango may lure anyone who has celebrated Germany’s victory too! Conductor Colin Attard and the 90-piece band will clearly see to that.

The repeat performance of Leone Goes Pop on Tuesday 22nd July 2014 starts at 9pm. Limited seating is free on a first-come-first-served basis. The public is cordially suggested to be in place at least 30 minutes in advance.

Feel free to read and view the success enjoyed by the Leone Band - the Aurora Opera House's own resident band, owner and manager - with its 7th edition of Leone Goes Pop on Saturday 7th June 2014, that will be repeated on Tuesday 22nd July 2014 in Marsalforn Bay, Gozo.
