Atlas Insurance organised a tour for its employees at an exhibition entitled “Music in Malta – from Prehistory to Vinyl”, which was held at the Mdina Cathedral Museum, sponsored by the insurer, according to a press statement sent to Business Malta.
The recently-held project highlighted the wealth of musical instruments and sounds associated with the Maltese culture, their development locally and within the Mediterranean, and the influences that have helped to shape them. The project, spearheaded by Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti included a number of music performances, talks, exhibitions and workshops.
During the visit, Atlas Insurance employees were given an introduction to the project, after which they were able to enjoy the exhibition at their leisure. This exhibition was guest-curated by Anna Borg Cardona, one of the leading authorities in Malta’s national music history and traditional musical instruments.
“Atlas is proud to have supported Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti in this fascinating and informative project, which shone a light on our musical heritage, and gave the public the opportunity to view and learn about facets of our history which are less well-known,” said Jackie Attard Montalto, Marketing and HR Manager of Atlas Group.
