SCJ Children's Choir
Every child can sing, every child has the right to receive a good quality choral education to develop and nurture what s/he naturally already possess.
Schola Cantorum Jubilate, established in the year 2000, has always been at the forefront in providing and developing excellent choral programmes for all of its members. Its commitment has helped in gaining an excellent reputation both locally and abroad. In 2017, a new initiative saw the establishment of the SCJ Children’s Choir. The aim was to provide a high quality choral education for the younger generation and to offer excellent performance opportunities with versatile choral repertoire. In 2020, the SCJ Teenage Boys Singers was formed in order to create a new platform for boys with changing voices.
The choir conductor is Marouska Attard, a graduate in choral conducting who has spent her career teaching music to young children, while pianist Amy Rapa assist and accompany the choir.
Since its inception, the SCJ Children’s Choir has taken part in several productions. These include Once Upon a Story, Carols in the Cathedral and the children's opera by Joseph Vella, Little Little Bo Peep. In March 2019, they have taken part in the Maltese Islands Festival where they obtained a distinction and ranked second in the choirs' competition led by an international jury. In December 2020, they participated in the choir’s production of Song Reborn: Drive-in Virtual Concert. The children's choir also collaborated with other choirs and musicians alike, mainly with Schola Cantorum Jubilate adult choir, the Malta School of Music Young Singers, Echo String Ensemble, The Brass Tubes and with the Cordia String Quartet.
