Synopsis

If the true concord of well-tuned sounds,
By unions married, do offend thine ear,
They do but sweetly chide thee, who confounds
In singleness the parts that thou shouldst bear.

Let the voices of the Singapore Symphony Children's Choir, Choirmaster Wong Lai Foon and Assistant Choral Conductor Ellissa Sayampanathan immerse you in the Poetry of Song, their voices lifting latent words from the score to convey the tender tales and heartfelt emotions of their composers. Through the classics of Brahms, Fauré and Schubert and contemporary gems by composers from the USA, UK, Hungary, Singapore and more, experience the power and beauty of words combined with music.
