Brief Encounters: A Musical Affair
Synopsis

“ ... The Chorus Sine Nomine singers swept everybody off their feet during their brilliant interventions...” - Online Merker, 27 March 2013

“ …  Li was an epitome of poise and polish.” - The Straits Times, 8 July 2013

“ ... the orchestra has a phenomenal string section...”- The Straits Times, 8 June 2013   

Austria meets Singapore for a brief musical rendezvous when one of Austria’s leading vocal ensembles returns with a one-night only concert at the Esplanade Concert Hall.

Prize winning innovative Viennese concert choir Chorus Sine Nomine, founded by Johannes Hiemetsberger in 1991 shares the evening with Yamaha and Bosendorfer Artist Churen Li and the Metropolitan Festival Orchestra in an enchantingly poetic musical coze. Churen Li has recently attained her Master’s degree in Music at the Yale School of Music where she studied with Peter Frankl and Hung-Kuan Chen.

From the sweeping melodies of Rachmaninoff’s popular Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18 (memorably featured in the award winning 1945 film Brief Encounter) to Brahm’s uplifting Wie lieblich sind deine wohnungen to Parry’s anthem Blest Pair of Sirens (sung at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton) and Schubert’s powerful Mass No. 6 in E-flat D950, Brief Encounters: A Musical Affair  promises an unforgettable evening of passionate longing and ethereal bliss.
