Joseph Calleja gave a magnificent concert on the Granaries in Floriana on Saturday, accompanied by New Zealand soprano Hayley Westenra and Italian legend Lucio Dalla.

The tenor paid tribute to Mary Fenech Adami with a rendition of Ave Maria and to the late President Emeritus Guido de Marco when he sang Caruso.

The concert was presented by NnG Productions.

The concert was the first of four for Calleja this month. On the 20th he will participate in a gala concert in Regensburg, Germany. On the 24th he features in the BBC Proms and on the 28th he will be in Jerusalem with soprano Renée Fleming and conductor Zubin Mehta at a concert honouring the legacy of American tenor Richard Tucker.
