One of the original founding members of the Malta Band Club Carmel Bonanno is still very active playing the clarinet.
Born in Melieha, Malta in 1926 Carmel came to Canada in 1952 and soon found his way to Toronto and meeting up with a few Maltese musicians who would eventually found the Malta band club under the direction of Maestro Paul Gauci.
Carmel started his band playing career in Malta at about the age of 16 years playing the clarinet. He also tried the Sax for a while but soon stuck to just his favourite instrument.
