We had overwhelming support especially for the Beneficiary Tickets and this allowed us to reach out to communities that would otherwise not have gotten the opportunity to be at the Esplanade Concert Hall. Other than Care Corner Family Service Centre (Woodlands), our beneficiaries included Special Seeds Singapore, Rare Disorders Society, Daughters of Tomorrow, and students from low-income families. Vox Camerata is committed to ensuring that music is accessible to people regardless of musical background, expertise and experience. We couldn’t have done this without you – thank you!
Having successfully completed its first concert tour of Australia’s Southern Queensland at the invitation of Brisbane’s St. John’s Cathedral in 2015 as well as a season of a capella concerts and performances in 2016, Vox Camerata now looks forward to its next challenge: to perform choral-orchestral works.
Teaming up for the first time with our friends from The Young Musicians’ Foundation Orchestra (TFYMO), The Anderson Junior College Alumni Choir and The German Protestant Church Choir, 2017’s Musica Intimae opens with Felix Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides Overture, followed by Ralph Vaughan Williams’ 5 Mystical Songs, Gabriel Faure’s Cantique de Jean Racine and finally, John Rutter’s Magnificat. The choir and orchestra are also honoured to have the talented Soprano soloist, Akiko Otao and Bass soloist, Brent Allcock, join us on stage.
About the Repertoire:
This installation of the Musica Intimae series is entitled EvenSongs. This is in reflection of the pieces that will be performed for the concert. The concert begins with the Hebrides Overture by Felix Mendelssohn. This beautiful orchestral miniature sets the reflective tone of the concert. The text of Vaughan William’s work speaks of consciousness of the connection between the physical and the spiritual in the state between wakefulness and sleep, and also articulates the allegorical journey of the self. Faure’s sublimely beautiful work employs a lush texture of strings and voices to paint the text by the French poet Racine, and clearly shows the composer’s masterful affection of long flowing lines and arching melodies. Rutter’s Magnificat is a familiar favourite of choirs in Singapore, and the ensemble presence this with the full orchestra version.
