If you missed the Vienna Boys’ Choir when they were in Singapore last year for the Singapore Sun Festival, now’s your chance to delight in angelic voices.
The (almost) equally famous St Thomas Boys Choir from Leipzig, Germany will be in Singapore for a one-night only performance of Bach’s compositions at the Esplanade Theatre.
The choir is one of the oldest choirs in Germany, boasting traditional lines back to the great composer, Johann Sebastian Bach. He was also their choirmaster at St Thomas Church, where he served while working on some of his most important works.
The choir has 55 members, ranging from 10 to 18 year olds. You can just imagine the thousands who tryout every year for that coveted place in the choir. Choir members still rehearse five hours a day, learn a new Bach cantata each week and give three public concerts every weekend.
Hear them sing:
