CELEBRATING THE SINGAPORE SYMPHONY CHORUS AT 40!
The Singapore Symphony Chorus launches a year-long celebration to mark its 40th anniversary on Saturday 4 April with Forty-ssimo: The Welcome Celebration!
The concert, which takes place at Victoria Concert Hall, is the beginning of a year of celebrations showcasing the breadth and depth of the SSC. Choral Director Eudenice Palaruan conducts a programme of three works from three different countries and eras.
Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem – a choral masterpiece of the 20th century – opens the concert, before the chorus turns its attention to a gem of the Baroque: Francesco Durante’s Magnificat in B-flat major. The concert closes with the exquisite Dance of Exultation by contemporary composer Dan Forrest.
The Singapore Symphony Chorus will be joined by organist Isaac Lee and musicians from the Singapore Symphony Orchestra.
Choral Director Eudenice Palaruan studied composition and conducting at the University of the Philippines College of Music and trained under Dr Joel Navarro, Dr Ramon Santos and Prof. Andrea Veneracion. After obtaining his Bachelor Degree in the Philippines, he studied Choral Conducting at the Berliner Kirchenmusikschule in Germany under Prof. Martin Behrmann.
