Għawdex Illum

by Stefan Attard

Schola Cantorum Jubilate today was featured on ‘Għawdex Illum’, the programme which showcases Gozo and the Gozitans. In fact, it was all about the choir’s recent tour in Venice and Padova. CVC Media managed to capture the highlights of the tour and through its programme, the choristers could relive those precious moments spent together while the audience could watch all that the choir went through.

Undoubtedly it is a keepsake for the choristers. Another cherished memory to store in the archive!
