Choirs & Concerts

Visiting choir members are most welcome to join the choir for Sunday services whilst in Malta. Please make yourself known to the sidespersons who will conduct you to the choir vestry where you will be given music and a robe

 

St Paul’s has long cultivated its musical tradition. As well as a regular Sunday Choir, the St Paul Choral Society – a local Choir directed by the Organist, Dr Agius Muscat – sings at certain significant services.

The Pro-Cathedral and Holy Trinity Church both welcome visiting choirs and musicians,
often at services and for concert performances during the year

The Pro-Cathedral is a significant landmark in Valletta, such a welcome also allows us to contribute to the musical life of the city.
Lunch time live concerts are charged at the door. We are currently asking for bids from visiting choirs and Ensembles for the Valletta European Capital of Culture 2018

If you would like more information regarding our concert policy and frequency please contact
Jean Attard 21411088 or visit our Facebook page – St Paul;s Pro Cathedral
