Mro. Carmelo Abela

Although little is known about Mro. Carmelo Abela, he was one of the finest musicians of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Mro Abela was famous for the composition of arrangements of Opera Selections to be played by the band clubs. Throughout his career, Mro Abela was conductor of a number of local bands, such as our band club, San Ġiorġio of Bormla and is also considered as the first conductor of the Każin Banda San Ġorġ Martri of Ħal-Qormi.

Another confirmation of his influence in the musical sphere is the fact that the La Valette Band Club committee had consulted Mro Abela when there was the need of appointed a new Maestro, and most probably, Mro Vinċenzo Carabott was appointed conductor of this band in 1889 on his consultancy.
