As young Ambassadors of Singapore Lyric Opera, the SLO Children's Choir has continued to charm the hearts of many with their beautifully trained voices. After their successful participation in Howard Shore's The Lord of the Rings Symphony at the 2008 Singapore Arts Festival, and Puccini's Turandot in August/September 2008, the Choir returns to do their 2nd solo concert with a repertoire of songs from all over the world.
