The Palace, Sliema once again offered its support to local culture in its ongoing endeavour to promote the arts. Consequently the Hotel has strengthened its relationship with Malta Philharmonic Orchestra confirming its position as a partner. This recent collaboration reflects the important that the Hotel together with the rest of AX Hotels gives to Maltese talent and culture.
The Palace hosted the CD launch of Cosmos Wind Ensemble entitled “Premieres”, in collaboration with Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and V18. This ensemble has recently performed in Australia as part of the CHOGM Culture Outreach Programme. Next month the company will be performing in Frankfurt as part of the ECB European Culture Days.
During this launch, the Hotel Manager, Mr Kevin Callus emphasised how AX Hotels are continuously encouraging local talent and feel privileged to uphold musical groups such as the Cosmos Wind Ensemble. “We are delighted to be associated with the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, in particular by offering accommodation to foreign artists since this is significant as part of a joint cultural tourism programme agreement,” said Mr Callus.
The Executive Chairman of Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, Mro Sigmund Mifsud expressed his gratitude for the Hotel’s corporate sponsorship and support adding that the partnership with The Palace highlights the importance and value of Maltese businesses supporting the cultural sector. Mro Mifsud also showed his appreciation to V18 for its constant collaboration on a number of projects.
The Chairman of V18, Mr Jason Micallef explained that “Premieres” is an association between Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and V18 and it is a new concept on such a high international level, including all Maltese compositions. The overall production of Cosmos’s CD is of high quality both in terms of project and musicianship.
