The Sounds of Sacred Music Lecture Recital gives an intimate look at the vocal and musical practices of four of Singapore’s religious communities. Each presenter will demonstrate examples of their musical practice and then share the meanings and beliefs behind said practices.
The presenters of this lecture recital are Vedic Metal Band Rudra, Pramaha Amnuay from the Wat Ananda Metyarama Temple, singers from the Schola Cantorum Sancti Gregorii Magni, as well as the Naysid Group Tasnim.
Centre for Interfaith Understanding (Singapore) and Vox Camerata jointly present “Sojourners: Sacred Heritage in Singapore from the Mediterranean to the Bay of Bengal”, a three-day festival consisting of a forum, public workshop, lecture recital, and concert.
The festival activities provide a collective platform for mediated conversations and discussions about the diversity of faith practices in Singapore and how Singaporeans navigate this diversity. This initiative aims to: (1) provide a safe and conducive environment for Singaporeans to come together to develop intercultural and interfaith strategies for community building, (2) promote a deeper appreciation and understanding of the cultural and faith practices, especially those of Singapore’s smaller ethno-religious minorities, and (3) use these dialogues and experiences as a means of strengthening our shared sense of identity so as to inculcate resilience and inclusivity amidst the backdrop of rising racial and religious tensions around the world.
