Limelight 2018 by Nanyang Junior College Choir
29 May 2018, 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Comprising young singers and an inspiring conductor full of energy and fervour for music-making, the NYJC choir strives to continue making greater breakthroughs in our pursuit for choral excellence. More importantly, we will stay true to what we are – a family of singers that makes beautiful music together.
The choir has been making its mark in both the local and overseas choral music scenes. After clinching gold awards in the Festival of Songs held in Olomouc, Czech Republic in 2010 as well as the 12th International Choir Competition Riva del Garda in Italy in 2012, the choir has continued to reach multiple milestones in its choral journey. In 2013, the choir was also a part of the Esplanade’s Limelight Series, showcasing a repertoire which reflected the choir’s past, present, and future. In the 2013, 2015 and 2017 Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation, the choir was awarded the Certificate of Distinction.
The NYJC Choir has also taken part in many collaborative efforts including performing with Singapore Lyric Opera in its annual Gala Concerts in 2015 and 2016 and joined hands with choirs from various local institutions including Hwa Chong Institution, Chung Cheng High School (Main), CHIJ Katong Convent and Anglo Chinese School (Independent).
Bringing the arts to communities in need through Limelight
Half of the ticket proceeds will go toward supporting Esplanade’s community engagement programmes which bring the arts to at-risk youth, the elderly, people with special needs and other underserved communities.
