Mare Nostrum - Music from the Mediterranean Shores

As part of her final recital for her MMus in Choral Conducting, Marouska together with RWCMD singers will be performing music from Italy and her native country, Malta.

Marouska has at heart the choral works of Maltese composers and she found this a gold opportunity to showcase the works of these musicians abroad. The music of Charles Camilleri, Christopher Muscat and Paul Portelli will feature in this recital. Knowing the link that there always was between Malta and Italy even way back to the Roman times, Marouska decided to include a rather unpopular sacred piece by the Italian composer Quirino Gasparini. Additionally the title for this concert reinforces this link. Mare Nostrum was in fact the term used by the Romans to describe the Mediterranean Sea. Lately this term has also been used to name an EU project that involves mostly Mediterranean countries in order to explore new methods to preserve the Mediterranean coastline.

So if you happen to be in Cardiff on Friday 6th June just come along and bring others with you at the Dora Stoutzker Hall, at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama to enjoy a taste of music from the Mediterranean. Concert starts at 19.30.
