Here at it has always been a source of enormous pride for us to showcase the undisputed breadth of talent in the worlds of the visual and performing arts of the Maltese islands.

Many an actor, singer, musician, painter, ceramicist, jewellery designer and more have graced our pages (and of course, Volume I of our Artists’ Directory); and if you aspire to join their ranks, the Malta Society of Arts (MSA)  in Valletta offers myriad courses in the visual, applied, and performing arts within its premises – the beautifully-renovated Palazzo de La Salle. Starting from October, these courses will be taught by the society’s highly qualified tutors,

The performance art courses include new jazz composition and jazz improvisation courses by jazz saxophonist and composer Carlo Muscat. The performing arts courses will also include lessons in pianoforte, violin and the guitar, while the voice course will resume in October with a new tutor, known Maltese soprano Ruth Sammut Casingena, who will be bringing new energy to the voice classes at Palazzo de La Salle.
