Singapore Choral Youth Festival 2017
12 August 2017, Saturday
Venue: School Of The Arts, Concert Hall
The Singapore Choral Youth Festival (SCYF), which is organised by The Vocal
Consort is a spin-off from the Singapore Choral Festival, the heart and soul of SCYF
revolves around youths who love to sing.
The inspiration came from the formation of The National Youth Choir of Singapore,
one of The Vocal Consort’s sub-branches, where a platform is provided for our
young members to hone their skills and cultivate a love for singing. It is incredibly
inspiring to watch these young individuals take the stage and own the craft they are
Chung Cheng High School (Main) Choir was selected to perform for the Singapore
Choral Youth Festival which pays tribute to Singapore’s 52 nd birthday. This
performance is a homage to all things Singaporean; led by local conductors and
local choirs collaborating to perform works by our local composers and arrangers.
Chung Cheng High School (Main) Choir performed a colourful repertoire ranging
from Mandarin, English, Malay, Hokkien, Cantonese and even Japanese. By
featuring pieces by composers and arrangers from past and present generations, our
choir wants to inspire the youths to continue their pursuit of hopes and inspirations.
