A call for auditions is being made for sopranos, altos, tenors and basses to join KorMalta.

With an interest to invest in choral music and choristers in Malta, Arts Council Malta has set up KorMalta, Malta’s National Choir.  KorMalta handles both a cappella as well as symphonic repertoire with musical ensembles such as the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and the Valletta International Baroque Ensemble.

Apart from rehearsing for concerts for which the choristers get paid, the members of KorMalta are given the opportunity to experience masterclasses with local and foreign professionals and improve their singing and general music skills with the aim of making professional choristers of them.  These classes are provided free of charge for KorMalta singers.

A call for auditions is being made for sopranos, altos, tenors and basses to join KorMalta.    The audition will be structured as follows:

  • A few scales to give an idea of your vocal range
  • Performance of the classical piece of your choice
  • Sight reading a small piece provided on the day
  • Singing a choral piece which will be sent to you when you apply for the audition

Auditions will be held on the 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th September, 1st, 2nd October. Interested parties are to send an email to helena.ferro@artscouncilmalta.org until noon of the 19th September 2019.   A pdf version of a score of a classical piece of music of one’s choice to be performed during the audition should also be sent by the same date.

Not all successful candidates are guaranteed a place in KorMalta, as the balance of voices needs to be taken into account.  A waiting list will however be created and candidates may be asked to join the chorus for bigger projects as the need arises.
