Urbanus Concert Series - No. 10

The 17th edition of  ‘Il-Kuncert tal-Milied’, the well established Yuletide Concert with Chorus Urbanus, marked a special event this year.This concert, the 10th in the Urbanus Concert Series, marked the opening of the celebratory year commemorating the Choir’s 40th Anniversary (1975 – 2015). It was held at St. George’s Basilica on Saturday, the 20th of December, starting at 8.00pm.
