Mewġa Mużika is an interactive musical work curated by the Portuguese group Ondamarela. Rooted in co-operation and collaboration, the programme is open to people of all ages and musical backgrounds. It proposes the creation of a public music performance that builds bridges through music. Various communities take part in intensive workshops with maestro Tim Steiner, to create a big community orchestra.
The result is a unique and irreplicable concert that reflects the diverse memories, worldview and culture of the communities involved. Mewġa Mużika reinforces the idea that all citizens can have a large-scale impact on artistic initiatives in a structured, rigorous and ludic way, while also creating a platform for local musicians from all genres and walks of life.
Ever dreamt of being in an orchestra? Now’s your chance! A workshop for participants (musicians and non musicians) wishing to take part in this project is currently open. Be part of this community based orchestra for a performance taking place in September 2018!
The workshop will be held on Thursday and Friday 5th and 6th April at 6pm in the Munxar Parish Centre, Munxar, Gozo.

More information about the project will be given during the workshop.
