• Cosmos-wind-ensemble-aus2015

    Cosmos Wind Ensemble is a group of musicians from the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra who are travelling to Australia to represent the Government of Malta, as part of the CHOGM Malta 2015 cultural outreach programme. Music being performed by the Cosmos Wind Ensemble will be a blend of compositions by Maltese and international composers and will feature music from the group’s latest cd, ‘Premieres’.

    The following video clip from their cd features music by Maltese composers if you wish to make use of it on social media: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8Vu67SumHM. This piece depicts one of the OLD buses, complete with the driver who turns on the engine halfway down the hill to save petrol and as a result it sputters and splats, as well as the klaxon horn and the shouts of the passengers! It is a composition with the audiences in gales of laughter, especially if they have ever ridden one of the old 1950s buses.

Time to establish a civil rights movement in Australia


 BLOG   By Victor Borg  Over the last few days on our TV screens we have followed the sad plight of thousands of refugees making their way to Europe from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. We have seen them crossing in rubber dinghies to Greek islands from Turkey and marching through Hungary in their desperate attempt at reaching Austria and Germany to make a future for themselves and their families. One can’t help but admire their spirit to overcome all odds. Read more …
