ANTON BELOUSOV CHARITY CONCERT

For tickets call Fr. Alex Cauchi on 356 79286785.


Efforts to save the chapel and affreschi that are housed on the first floor of St Augustine’s Priory in Valletta are being stepped up as a series of events designed to highlight the architectural features of the building and the imperilled art pieces.

The first event takes place on June 5 and will feature blind pianist Anton Belousov. The 26-year-old musician is considered a prodigy, having been born blind and starting to learn to play the piano at the age of seven, under very difficult conditions. He is currently performing as a solo-pianist, and orchestra pianist, with the Philharmonic Orchestra of St Petersburg and the Philharmonic Orchestra Ryazan.

The concert is not a one-off, but marks the beginning of a project called Concert & Dinner, which will see up to three events taking place until the end of year, each one featuring different musicians.

All proceeds will go towards the funding of the restoration works.
