Following the 11th Anniversary of its inception, which was celebrated last weekend, Il-Ħaġar Museum and Community Cultural Centre in Victoria’s Pjazza San Ġorġ continues with its rich programme of events. On Saturday 2nd March 2024 the Museum will be hosting a recital by Noel Beck (clarinet), Fiorella Camilleri (flute) and Anne Marie Podestà (harp). The trio will be performing works by Shostakovich, Saint-Saëns, Debussy, Faure, Bizet, and others. The Concert starts at 19:30 and, as is the Museum’s democratic policy, entrance is free. Seat reservations are recommended by sending an email to email@example.com. This recital forms part of the initiative Easter in Gozo organised by the Ministry for Gozo and Planning and is supported by the Cultural Heritage Directorate within the same Ministry. The audience can enjoy this evening of music while surrounded by the works of the current exhibition Unknown Prescription where paintings and photography by Maltese artists Mario Abela, Charles Balzan, and Justin Falzon “dialogue with artefacts” from Il-Ħaġar’s permanent collection. This exhibition remains open until Sunday 14th April 2024. The Museum is also currently exhibiting Joseph Vella’s works for woodwind until Tuesday 19th March 2024 in commemoration of the 6th Anniversary of his passing.
