Lovin Malta reached out to the pair to find out more about the singers and the event they’re gearing up for, a recital dedicated to all things classical music called “Musical Mosaic”.
Sopranos Bettina and Lisa organised the event, along with British composer and tenor Tom Armitage, who resides in Malta.
“When it comes to why we organized it, it comes down to us wanting to create opportunities for us to perform classical repertoire in a time where there is a lot of Musical Theatre work going on and also for us to showcase ourselves to people in the sector,” Lisa told the newsroom.
“I was introduced to this genre by my grandmother who LOVES classical music and from a young age, I always remember watching something opera related when I was at her house. And then it continued through my singing tutoring sessions with tutor Denise Mulholland.”
Bettina admitted that the very same song that the pair filmed, that is the famous Duo Des Fluers, is what made her fall in love with the world of classical music.
“It is one of the first pieces of classical music I remember listening to. It was so impossibly beautiful that I was left lost for words and all I could do was listen again and again. As I explored the genre more, I quickly discovered so much more music that left the same impact on me,” the singer expressed.
“Many of the pieces that I have chosen to perform at the recital are ones that led me to fall in love with classical music. To have the opportunity to perform these for the audience is really special.”
“Hosting more events such as classical recitals are imperative to keep up and grow the interest in the genre locally. There is definitely an audience for it here in Malta, one which can always be expanded,” Bettina continued.
The recital will take place on 16th and 21st April at Palazzo de La Salle in Valletta.
