History of the Spring Orchestra Festival
The International Spring Orchestra Festival began in April 2007 by hosting a number of master classes for string instruments, culminating in a grand concert at the magnificent Teatru Manoel. The idea behind the festival was inspired by the rich history of the Maltese islands. Due to its central location in the Mediterranean Sea, Malta was a melting pot of cultures where different nations met and fought for reign over the small island. This history led composer Karl Fiorini to found the festival, which would celebrate both local artistry and interure/mnational musicians uniting in the name of exceptional music.
