THE MALTA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
Founded in 1968, the Orchestra was formerly known as the Manoel Theatre Orchestra, and was an offspring of the chamber orchestra in the employment of the Commander-in-Chief of the British Navy (Malta). It became an independent body in 1997 when it was officially named the National Orchestra of Malta, and underwent its final transformation in 2008 when it was further extended and became known as the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra(MPO).
Valletta will be the European Capital of Culture in 2018. Moreover, 2018 will represent the 50th anniversary of the maltese orchestra and the 10th anniversary of the full-extended Malta Philharmonic Orchestra.
