This edition of the Malta International Choir Festival Composition Competition|
is dedicated to the memory of one of Malta’s preeminent composers: Benigno Zerafa1.
Malta has regularly hosted international choir festivals and competitions since 1988. The islands of Malta and Gozo can boast of a very thriving choral scene and – with over 350 churches serving a population of about 430,000 – the choral tradition is, understandably, built around and mostly focused on sacred music.
In 2017, the Ministry for Tourism and the Malta Tourism Authority will be holding another edition of the Malta International Choir Festival between 2 and 5 November. As part of the structural components of the festival the organising committee is pleased to launch the 2nd edition of the Malta International Festival Composition Competition. The aim of this competition is to choose the best composition that will be performed and recorded during the festival.
Participating composers are very welcome to attend the festival but international participants would be required to fund their own travel and accommodation.
