Venue : Esplanade Concert Hall, Singapore
Enquiry : (65) 6336 1929

Join us for an inspiring evening of music-making, as we open our hearts and ears to the pristine voices of the SLO Children’s Choir. Let them remind us of the songs and stories from our youth, and share with us the melodies of their own youthful hopes and dreams. Wherever you are, and whoever you are, come rediscover the child in you, and Don’t Stop Believing...

Featuring three segments of folksongs from Asia, Europe and North America, the concert will include songs like Ikan Kekek and Humpty Dumpty; newly commissioned songs from local composers Dr Kelly Tang and Dr Goh Toh Chai and an arrangement of Xinyao songs handpicked by Dr Liang Wen Fu personally arranged by Ms Liong Kit Yeng.

Our guest choir from Anglo-Chinese Secondary School (Barker Road) will join the ensemble to perform contemporary songs from the musical Les Miserables and the best of Glee from the popular TV series.
