Tonight: Maladies and Melodies by EU Baroque Orchestra

The Malta Arts Festival will present Maladies and Melodies by The European Union Baroque Orchestra which will be held on the 21st July at the Ambassador’s Room, Auberge de Castile, Valletta at 21:00 hrs.

The European Union Baroque Orchestra is a highly valued training resource for young musicians. Without EUBO providing a constantly refreshed pool of experienced new talent, there is no doubt that professional baroque ensembles would find it difficult to maintain their standards.

Since its foundation in 1985, the Orchestra has given concerts in 52 different countries as an Ambassador for the European Union. As well as performing in all the EU countries and in some of Europe’s most prestigious venues and festivals, EUBO has also included many frequently neglected regions in its touring programmes, for example the Middle East and South America. Since 2008, the Orchestra has based many of its activities at the new Centre Culturel Trifolion in Echternach, Luxembourg, including an ambitious new concert series Echter’Barock, organised in partnership with the International Festival and the City of Echternach. This is the first appearance of the EUBO in Malta.
