The President of Malta

Launching of Rockestra 2023 – An event in aid of The Malta Community Chest Fund


Rockestra 2023 with the theme “More Than a Feeling” will be held on Saturday 30 September at the Malta Fairs & Conventions Centre, MFCC, Ta’ Qali.

This will be the final edition of Rockestra organised under the Presidency of President George Vella in aid of The Malta Community Chest Fund.

Rockestra’s Artistic Director Pawlu Borg Bonaci said that Rockestra, organized by The Malta Community Chest Fund together with a number of volunteers, is not just a rock concert, but an event with a noble cause that brings together people from different walks of life.

For the first time, Rockestra’s Musical Director will be Maestro Aurelio Belli who explained that he also benefited from the help of The Malta Community Chest Fund, and that through Rockestra he will be giving something back after the great help he received during the most difficult period of his life due to cancer.

President George Vella thanked the organisers as well as The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and the singers for once again making every effort to make Rockestra a success. The ultimate aim of this event, said the President, is to raise funds for The Malta Community Chest Fund which supports hundreds of people, among others due to illness.

Also present for Rockestra’s launch, which has now entered its fifteenth year, were the Chairman of the Board of Administrators of The Malta Community Chest Fund John Huber, as well as the Minister for the National Heritage, the Arts, and Local Government Owen Bonnici and the Opposition’s Spokesperson for the National Heritage, the Arts, and Culture Julie Zahra. They encouraged the public to attend Rockestra which is not only promoting Maltese talent but above all pursuing a noble goal.

It was announced that among the singers taking part this year are Aidan Drakard, David Loewe, Mikaela, Moira, Martina, Kersten Graham, Kevin Paul, Kenneth, Matthew James, Klinsmann, Raquela, Chris Grech, Peter Grech, Frank Calleja, Lara Dimech, Brooke Borg, and Pawlu Borg Bonaci.
