MALTA PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA VOICE AND HARP TRIO
The MPO Voice & Harp unique trio is made up of soprano Gillian Zammit, mezzo-soprano Clare Ghigo and harpist Britt Arend, three performers who are all highly experienced and in-demand performers in their own right.
Gillian Zammit studied with Carlo Bergonzi and Victoria de Los Angeles in Italy and is a regular performer of song and Lied recitals as well as being a highly regarded exponent of Maltese baroque music.
She performs regularly abroad along with performers such as Joseph Calleja and Emma Kirkby. Clare Ghigo is a graduate of the RWCMD and GSMD and has performed amongst others the roles of Carmen, Annio in Malta and Wales and is also a graduate of the Solti Academy. Harpist Britt Arend studied at The Conservatorio in Brussels and later studied at the Accademia del Teatro alla Scala in Milan. She has performed in Italy, Ireland and Germany and has been the lead harpist of the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra since 2008.
The Trio’s first album entitled “Aprile”, which was launched in 2015, has been very well received. The Trio formed part of the Malta Showcase 2016 Portfolio and recently performed to great public acclaim at the Alte Oper in Frankfurt. The Trio also went on tour in January 2017, performing at prestigious venues in Berlin and Paris.
