Welcome Message

Dear fellow Conductors and Choristers,

We are happy to invite you to the 5th Singapore International Choral Festival, held in the bustling modern metropolis of Singapore from 19 – 22 July 2018. Over the four days, choristers will get to perform at some of the most emblematic, cultural and historical venues in Singapore and there is nothing better than choral music to bind a community and serve as a bridge between generations.

Under the artistic direction of Singapore Cultural Medallion recipient Ms Jennifer Tham of Singapore, this festival brings together an international panel of choral clinicians to lend their experience and guidance to participants through their choral journey.

In addition to this, the festival has partnered with the Bali International Choir Festival of Indonesia and the Andrea O. Veneracion International Choral Festival of Philippines to start the Asia Choral Grand Prix. Grand Prix winners of each festival will be invited to participate in the Asia Choral Grand Prix which will be hosted in rotation by the participating festivals.

Over the past editions, we have had the honour of hosting some of the most artistic and culturally diverse choirs from around the region and beyond, and this year is no different with the Youth Choir Kamēr from Latvia as the SICF Feature Choir! Come and join us at the 5th Singapore International Choral Festival for a great choral and intercultural experience!

With warmest regards,
