‘The Mediterranean Dimension’ – a project which is funded by the Arts Council Malta and Valletta 2018 Foundation Multi-Annual Support Grant

The project is in its second year and will culminate in a research encounter, intercultural residency and concert in March. At this stage of the project, however, we are organising the Malta Auditions for the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra. Every year, almost 600 musicians apply to one of the auditions organized in twenty countries of the Mediterranean and some 100 young talents are selected to participate in one of the MYO’s sessions in Aix-en-Provence.​
Auditions for the Symphonic Session are being held on Sunday 26th November and applications are now open. Audition criteria and music scores may be accessed through this link: https://academie.festival-aix.com/en/workshop/2018-symphonic-session and applications through: http://www.arcrc.eu/symphonic-sessions-applications. The deadline to apply for an audition is Sunday 19th November 2017.
Ahead of these auditions, we are also organising an ‘Orchestra Auditions Workshop’ on Thursday 16th November at 12:00 at the Department of Music Studies, University of Malta. Young musicians wishing to improve their audition skills are invited to attend. The workshop will particularly focus on audition etiquette and repertoire selection. Interested musicians are kindly asked to book their place via e-mail: bonnici.stephanie@gmail.com
