Auditions open to join the Malta Youth Orchestra

The Malta Youth Orchestra is holding auditions for its upcoming season, as it pushes forward to take young orchestral musicians under its wing, while giving them the opportunity to develop their talent and aspirations.

Founded in 2004, the MYO, in close collaboration with the MPO Academy, focuses on nurturing a sense of professionality in young musicians through regular rehearsals, workshops, masterclasses and performances with local and international music tutors under the artistic direction of  José García Gutiérrez.

Aiming to fulfill its vision to be an aspirational milestone for young musicians, the MYO has worked with prominent local and international conductors, including the Rehearsal Director of the European Union Youth Orchestra Peter Stark, Robert Hodge and David Chan.

It may be a youth orchestra, but this has not stopped the MYO from tackling core classical repertoire, while performing regularly alongside the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra, which recently reached 5.2m unique followers.

This is key to giving exposure to the future musicians of Malta’s foremost musical institution, as they will ultimately be the catalysts for the country’s cultural development.

The auditions close on July 12 and if you aspire or know someone seeking to chase their musical goals send an email to

 Malta Youth Orchestra, preparing today’s musicians for tomorrow’s orchestra.
