World Renowned Maynooth University Chamber Choir to perform in Malta This Weekend

One of Ireland’s top chamber choirs, the Maynooth University Chamber Choir, is currently in Malta on a week-long tour of concerts with local choirs. The first concert took place on Thursday, and another two will follow on 17 and 18 June at St. Patricks Church Sliema and at St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral Valletta, respectively.

This choir is the elite performing ensemble of the National University of Ireland and is made up of university students from across all disciplines.

The choir ensemble is auditioned at the start of each year and has built a reputation for representing the University, and Ireland through international touring in places such as Britain and Spain, and partaking in various competitions and recordings. Conducted by award-winning conductor Michael T. Dawson they are recognised worldwide for winning the “Choir of the World” Competition at the Llangollen Eisteddfod in Wales, one of the oldest choral competitions in the world, where they became the first Irish choir to lift the Pavarotti Trophy.

This trip is their first visit to Malta and the group’s first international tour since they performed on a world tour in 2016 across the U.S and China. The choir has a diverse repertoire and their programme stretches from sacred, to secular and folk as well as contemporary.

Attendance is free of charge!
