Event Details

“Youth” contains multitudes. It is about growing up and learning to confront the beautiful, the ugly and the complex. It is about looking to history for inspiration and hope. Ultimately, it is about establishing one’s place in the world. 

60 years after our founding as the Singapore Youth Choir and 20 years since we became the SYC Ensemble Singers, we examine this word that we once carried in our name but whose essence remains part of our identity today. 

Music by Singaporeans Leong Yoon Pin, Joyce Bee Tuan Koh and Diana Soh epitomise our passion for sonic experimentation while hearkening to the village that made us. Eric Whitacre’s “The Stolen Child” and Cristian Grases’ new setting of “Lux Aeterna” speak to the human grappling with eternity and the inevitable passage of time. Finally, Arvo Pärt’s “Te Deum” is at once our reflection on six decades of music making and our ode of joy and thanksgiving. 

Together with the Wayfarer Sinfonietta, choir alumni and friends as well as a new generation of Singapore choristers, we uncover what it means to 60 years young. 

This concert is made possible with the support of the National Arts Council Singapore.
