So....since my last update I've gone and had a baby! :) She's the love of my life and being a mum is by far the best 'role' ever! I've also just completed a short but amazing run of Jesus Christ Superstar where I got to play one of my favourite roles ever...that of Mary Magdalene! The production was held at Gozo's Teatru Astra and directed by the fantastic Hugh Wooldridge :) Now...for some exciting news - some UK shows in the pipeline this year - one that is confirmed is 'The Broadway Sessions UK' at the popular Zedel in London on the 17th June! More details coming soon! I will also be a guest singer at Studio 18's Muso Merlot event on the 27th April - live at Italian Job, Baystreet (Malta). To book tickets - just send a private message to me on Facebook!
Getting ready to take on my most challenging and exciting role ever - that of becoming a mum :) But still managed to set aside some time for the stage and recording - Nella Fantasia and Home are out for purchase and may be found on YouTube. Also managed to find some time to record two lovely musical theatre duets with a good friend of mine, Nadia Vella - I Know Him So Well and For Good - which are also available for purchase and may be found on YouTube. I recently also enjoyed being a part of something a bit different - being Backing Vocalist Coordinator for Malta's most popular band Red Electrick at 2017's Beer Festival. Before maternity leave actually begins, I'm looking forward to Studio 18's Gotta Sing Gotta Dance Golden Age musical revue, taking place this September, for which I am a soloist as well as vocal coach. Then it's all about being the best mum possible!
So pleased to announce that LET YOU GO was released this week and is also available on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/let-you-go-single/id1191806714 as well as on Amazon, Google Play, Spotify etc along with an incredible music video which I have so many amazing people to thank for! Thank YOU for your amazing support and for the funding received! The song and video have been receiving some brilliant feedback! To watch on youtube just copy and paste: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkJPnLYyxdc
I have also recently released my first spiritual praise song called Human Too and embarked on an overseas collaboration with composer Luuk Van Der Togt on the fairytale melody 'Upon the Hill'. January has proven to be busier than expected! :) Not complaining!
Playing the role of Maria in The Sound of Music was one of the best and most unforgettable theatrical experiences of my life! It was a dream role and I thoroughly enjoyed every second on stage! I'm also truly thrilled with the reviews! Andre Delicata, The Times of Malta: "Maria, played by the wonderful Rachel Fabri - whose clear, pure tones certainly do justice to the character - which is no easy task, as the Julie Andrews comparison is inevitable. However, Fabri made the role of Maria her very own...".
Now that Rock of Ages and Rockestra are over it's full on Sound of Music - rehearsals and more rehearsals! Can't wait to play the iconic role of Maria Von Trapp at the MCC on the 15th & 16th October!
Rockestra was an amazing and unforgettable experience - new photos are up!
Currently playing the role of Regina in Rock of Ages musical (June-Sept 2016) and will also be taking on the role of Maria in The Sound of Music in October. I'm also really looking forward to being a part of ROCKESTRA (10th September) at MFCC and to finishing off some originals I've been working on :)
After a much-needed break I'm getting back into hyper-work-mode! Gigs, weddings, concerts, recordings, tv .. I'm quite excited about the fact that I'm currently recording and writing some original material and loving the studio time! Another fun little event I'm working on is the first in a series of Stageit.com online concerts! My first online show will be held on Saturday 26th March at 16.30 CET and can be viewed from the comfort of your own home!
November 2015/ Dec 2015
The Last Five Years - Playing the role of Cathy was such an emotional and challenging journey - one I will cherish forever! Held at M Space, Malta: 20-29 November. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_82VhiARssY&feature=youtu.be / Jes Camilleri, Sunday Times of Malta: "Rachel Fabri was a great Cathy, quietly emotional in her heart-wrenching delivery of her opening song Still Hurting and hilariously comical in her excellent Audition Sequence"/ Delicata, Times of Malta: "Fabri's performance was heartfelt and solid".
UK Album launch at The Pheasantry, London was a huge succuess!
