The New Choral Singers are without any doubt one of the most successful Maltese musical ensembles. Their success is reflected in an impressive following they enjoy by audiences, which is proof of their delicate and refined performances. Under the direction of Robert Calleja the Choir presents Songs for Summer – a concert of secular music, characterised by a departure from the classical sacred music they are renowned to interpret. This concert takes on a diverse theme by celebrating the beauty of nature, the complexity of mankind, and the greatness of the Creator, in a variety of items that range from witty and upbeat, to melodiously folk.
The Programme includes works by Brahms, Copland, des Pres, Finzi, Pace, Passereau, and Saint-Saëns
