SCJ Interviewed by the Times of Malta


by Kristina Chetcuti

Children should not be pushed to sing Let It Go while dancing to the music with “ugly” gyrating moves and, instead, be encouraged to join choirs, according to a choral conductor.

Marouska Attard, 30, from Xagħra, choral conductor of youth choir Schola Cantorum Jubilate, believes primary schools are not attaching too much importance to voice training and choir singing.

“When we were kids we used to sing a lot at school but, nowadays, children sing along to a You Tube clip on an interactive whiteboard,” she said.

And these days, at school prize days, children sang along to CDs rather than performing as a choir, Ms Attard said, adding that the way they moved seductively on stage was “ugly”.

Today it’s Christmas and SCJ kept its annual commitment to join the choirs of angels and sing with great joy the news of the birth of Christ. Before the 11am mass, the celestial voices of the choir performed some of the most favourit and popular Christmas carols such as ‘Sir Chistemas’, ‘Carol of the Drum’, ‘Hark the Herald’ and ‘Away in Manger’.
