Valletta 2018 - Grand Spectacular Opening of the European Capital of Culture

Published on January 21, 2018 by Frank

 

The official inauguration of Malta's capital city Valletta as the European Capital of Culture - Valletta 2018 was certainly a huge success.

Celebrated on Saturday in four main squares of the capital, in this post, we will focus upon what happened in St. John Square, Valletta.

In fact it was definitely a fantastic choral symphony with music composed by Elton Zarb and with a choir directed by Pamela Bezzina as well as a creative illumination and graphics were projected on the very old fascade of St. John's Co-Cathedral in Valletta.

The videos and pictures certainly do not do justice for the superb work to create such a synchronisation of music and lighting effects with the amazing choir's singing.

Hi! :) My name is Frank, born and live on the island of Gozo, Malta in the very heart of the Mediterranean Sea. I believe every holiday is a beautiful journey to discover and treasure new places in a local way. Well…I enjoy most swimming, walking, cycling, food and wine pairing. Last but not least, sea-kayaking in Gozo is top in my list and Hondoq is a place I really like. Please do not hesitate to text me. You are most welcome anytime! Grazzi hafna / Many thanks
