The La Vittoria Youth Band XOW returns, this year with a swing edition. Innovations and musical talent pertinent to traditional Maltese bands will not be lacking during this year’s edition.

Even though tonight’s concert will be dedicated in its majority to the swing musical genre, there will also be music played from the pen of Amilcare Ponchielli, Earth Wind & Fire, Avicii, Queen, Robbie Williams and much more. 

On the 150th anniversary from the passing of composer Giacchino Rossini, those present will get a taste of how his compositions would have been heard had they been played in a swing musical style. Complementing the La Vittoria Youth Band, among other performers, shall be a group of professional dancers, ‘Danza C’, under the direction of Christina Cauchi, the Drum Circle, singers Daniel Cauchi and Julia Grima, the children’s choir Vuċijiet Vittorjani and young, talented singers Mireille Borg, Thea Gauci and Cassandra Scerri. Ronald Briffa will also be giving his part during this year’s edition.

Ryan Mallia is director and producer. Entrance to the show at Mellieħa parish square tonight from 8pm is free.

Tomorrow the La Vittoria Band will present the annual feast concert, whereby band director Joseph Vella will be concluding 25 years of work and dedication with La Vittoria Band. During this concert Mro Vella will be handing over the band’s directorship to Mro Mallia.
