2018.03.18 Lignum Crucis Image 1As the Catholic world prepares itself for the celebration of the greatest mysteries of faith during Holy Week, the Leone Philharmonic Society, owner and manager of the Teatru tal-Opra Aurora will be, for yet another year, organising an evening of music and reflections in preparation of the Holy Week. The theme revolves around the Wooden Cross, inspired by the relic of the Holy Cross found in the Cathedral of Gozo – the same location of this event.

The Leone Band, under the baton of its conductor Colin Attard, shall perform a number of sacred themes and symphonic pieces which typically resonate around the concert houses and cathedrals around the globe at this time of the year. They will be integrated, amongst other items, with reflections on the Holy Cross and the mystery it represents, to create a seamless evening of meditation and prayers.

While the image of the Christ on the Cross does not (at face value) evoke beauty, it is the charm of the voice, the sublime music, the exquisite baroque architecture and the resplendent heritage that help man strengthen his faith to give a higher-order sense to the great story of salvation, for which the holy cross stands as the chivalrous ensign.

Colin Attard conducts the Leone Band. The Aurora Youth Choir shall participate. The programme will be announced in due course.

Venue: Gozo Cathedral Church, within the Gozo Ċittadella
Date: Sunday, 18 March 2018 (eve of a Public Holiday)
Starting  time: 8pm
Expected  duration: 75 minutes
Admission: Free of charge.
Reservation: Prior reservation is recommended. Free seating is also available.
