Corporate partnership agreement between the Central Bank of Malta and the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra

The Central Bank of Malta will be supporting the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) through a corporate partnership agreement signed on Wednesday 7 February 2018.

The agreement was signed by the Bank's Governor, Dr Mario Vella, and by the Executive Chairman of the MPO, Mro Sigmund Mifsud.

Corporate partnerships help support key areas of the Orchestra's work, and through this partnership agreement, the Bank will be supporting the purchase of orchestral instruments, the Orchestra's internship programme - through which promising young musicians are given the opportunity to prepare for making a career out of music - as well as the Malta Youth Orchestra.

Both the Bank and the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. The MPO was founded as the Manoel Theatre Orchestra on 1 April 1968; the Central Bank of Malta was established just 16 days later.

This April, fittingly, the MPO will be performing in a concert marking the Bank's 50th anniversary, under the direction of the highly-acclaimed Greek conductor Michalis Economou.
