Concord Invited To Tour Malta

Sheffield-based Concord Drum & Bugle Corps is delighted to announce that they have been invited by the Maltese Tourist Board to participate in their annual Historic Cites Festival during October 2006. 

The corps will spend six days in the Mediterranean island, performing at various city locations and taking part in the very prestigious Valletta Military Tattoo – held over three nights in the main Government Square of the capital city and featuring major contributions from the Malta Armed Forces and Police plus international guests. CONCORD will be the first independent British youth group to participate and Malta’s first-ever drum corps experience. The island is very busy with visitors during this internationally-acclaimed festival and the corps will perform to enormous audiences at all venues.

The full corps plus supporting staff will fly out to Malta on Wednesday 11th October and return on Monday 16th. In addition to their performance duties, they will take part in an exchange ceremony with local dignitaries and enjoy plenty of free time in the mid-20 degrees C temperatures that the islands enjoy in October. They will be based in a hotel in Sliema, a very popular tourist centre – very close to the sea.

Further details of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will be announced soon.
