This year's edition of Rockestra in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund will take place on 27 September at the MFCC in Ta' Qali, and will be based on the theme 'Don't Stop Believing'.

President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca was present at the launch of the sixth edition of the concert and expressed satisfaction at the quality of the 118 entrants. This year, a public call was made for those performers who have never participated in the event before.

On the event's theme, Coleiro Preca said that it held for both the performers, some of whom will be making their debut through their participation in Rockestra, as well as the sufferers of terminal illness who the Community Chest Fund will help thanks to funds raised.

The President thanked the volunteers who would be making the event possible, including the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and the Ministry of Justice and Culture, and sponsors.

Minister for Justice and Culture Owen Bonnici praised the Rockestra initiative for bringing the MPO more visibility through a noble cause.

The concert's artistic direction is being handled by Pawlu Borg Bonaci and the Orchestra will be directed by Mro. Sigmund Mifsud.

Bookings for the event can be made at ooii.com.mt, at the Grandmaster's Palace in Valletta and the San Anton Palace. More information is available on rockestra.com.mt and by calling 21 226 226.
