‘The Artist As Hero’ is the chosen theme for the 5th edition of the Three Palaces Festival, which seeks “to shine a focus on the contribution of extraordinary musicians and composers”.
Taking place from the 3rd to the 12th November, the Three Palaces Festival will once again see the participation of artists of exceptional talent from around the world. These renowned artists will perform within the beautiful setting of three of Malta’s historical Baroque palaces – San Anton Palace, Verdala Palace and the Grandmaster’s Palace – together with the National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta, a World Heritage city. Built during the time of the Knights of St John, these magnificent buildings have hosted many dignitaries and have held many important functions throughout time. Today, they will continue to play another important role – that of bringing people together to experience music of excellent quality as a community.
Oxford’s world class vocal ensemble Blenheim Singers will, through their singing at the National Museum of Archaeology, celebrate composers and writers who flourished during the reigns of Elizabeth I and Elizabeth II.
