Minister for Environment, Sustainability, Climate Change, Heritage and Culture, Professor John Cortes said:

“We are very proud to once again host the New Year’s Concerts for the whole family to enjoy together, focused on entertaining our children and introducing a new generation to the beauty and wonder of classical music.”

This concert has been organised by the Gibraltar Philharmonic Society, which has been bringing classical concerts to Gibraltar since 1998, and in September 2019 reached a new milestone when they packed the Europa Point Sports Complex with the Andrea Bocelli concert together with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as part of the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the closure of the frontier.
