In an exciting lead-up to the culmination of our choir exchange trip to Ise, Japan in July 2019, the SOPA Choir will be performing at various locations over the Christmas period.
Students are being coached by Ms Francesca Aquilina and Mr Tom Armitage and are working on repertoire beyond Christmas carols to perform in Japan this coming summer in the second part of a musical and cultural exchange that began this year.
Initialised by Valletta 2018 Foundation, choristers from Ise, Japan travelled to Malta and spent one week rehearsing and living with our choir students. The week included a number of Maltese cultural events as well as special concert in St Anglican Church, Valletta. This summer, our students will now be travelling to Japan in the second part of the exchange. They too will have the opportunity to discover new cultures and experience local customs and music-making in their preparations of a number of concerts around the Ise area.
Until then, join us at Baystreet, The Point, is-Suq tal-Belt, Phoenicia Hotel, Hilton Hotel, San Antonio Hotel over the Christmas period and help us spread the good cheer!
