VIAF 2020


Due to prevailing circumstances this year’s VIAF will be held in virtual mode with all concerts presented online. Apart from our Facebook page, we have also set up a new YouTube channel through which we will be able to transmit these concerts. Click on this link and subscribe so that you will be able to listen to all the concerts. Subscription is free. All videos will also be uploaded on the video gallery section.

Transitioning online has not been a picnic but with an overdose of determination and good will, together with the cooperation of musicians and sponsors this has been made possible. This year’s 23rd edition of VIAF contains over 30 concerts. The organisers found incredible cooperation from this year’s scheduled performers, quite a few of whom are recording specifically for this online series of concerts. Due to social distancing, concerts such as those by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra were not possible. In these cases, the organisers are resorting to historic recordings of MPO concerts in VIAF which have been specially edited by our engineer, Mario Farrugia.

As in the past couple of years, this year’s edition is dedicated to Mro Joseph Vella.

All concerts start at 8pm. The revised programme will be uploaded week by week.
