Set up on an ad hoc basis when a choir was needed for a performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony in May 2017, the success of that performance saw it become the MPO Chorus, responsible for all the MPO’s choral projects. This year, the choir is reborn as KorMalta, Malta’s first national choir, and its official launch will see it tackle some of the best examples of a cappella music across the centuries, performing in its entirety as well as in smaller chamber groups.

The programme spans from the sacred works of de Victoria and Palestrina to the profane of Mendelssohn and Monteverdi, with the concert’s key piece being the Lux Aeterna set to the music of Elgar’s timeless Nimrod.

This concert falls under the MPO membership scheme: members benefit from 50% discount on ticket prices, as well as various other benefits. For more information, please go to http://www.maltaorchestra.com/mpo-membership/.
