The Gozo Youth Wind Band & Orchestra, since its inception in 2002, has consisted of two separate groups of young and promising musicians, who have been entertaining the general public with a wide range of stylistic repertoire to the enjoyment of all age-groups.
Hailing from all over Gozo – enriched with proficient guest musicians including foreign residents residing on the island – these young musicians meet regularly to prepare a wide spectrum of musical genre.
Opera vs Pop Under the Stars is being organised in collaboration with the Ministry for Gozo, the American Embassy, the Culture Section within the Ministry for Gozo, Bank of Valletta, APS Bank, HSBC, Joseph Portelli Projects, and General Soft Drinks Co. Ltd.
