Coming Together to Sing with Vienna...
Don’t miss the exciting grand finale and celebration concert to the week long SVBC week in Singapore where audiences, conductors and music teachers get to interact with the world famous choir in various activities in Singapore centered on these main themes: See, Sing, Study and Socialise with the Vienna Boys Choir. The choir will be joined on stage by the kids’ philharmonic@sg Orchestra in the second half of the concert. Maestro Luiz de Godoy will conduct both the choir and orchestra. Godoy is the 2016 recipient of the Erwin Ortner Prize for Choral Music.The Vienna Boys Choir has been singing at Vienna's Imperial Chapel since 1296. In 1498, Maximilian I (HRR) moved his court to Vienna, lock, stock, and choir, thus founding the “Hofmusikkapelle” (Chapel Imperial), and the Vienna Boys Choir. Over the centuries, the Viennese Court attracted great musicians like Isaac, de Monte, Fux, Caldara, Gluck, Salieri, Mozart, and Bruckner; Joseph Haydn, Michael Haydn, and Franz Schubert were themselves choir boys. Until 1918, the boys sang exclusively for the court. In the 1920s, the choir was reestablished as a private organisation. Professor Gerald Wirth is the its Artistic Director, and its president.Today, there are 100 choristers between the ages of nine and fourteen, divided into four touring choirs. Each choir spends nine to eleven weeks of the academic year on tour. Together, the choirs give around 300 concerts each year, attended by almost half a million spectators around the world. The choir regularly tours Europe, Asia and Australia, and the Americas.The choir’s repertoire includes everything from medieval to contemporary music. Motets and lieder form the core of the touring repertoire, as do the choir’s own arrangements of Viennese music. The choir also performs children’s operas and world music.The Vienna Boys Choir performs with major orchestras, such as the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the Staatskapelle Berlin, the Oslo Philharmonic, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, conducted by world famous conductors.You can find out more about SVBC week at www.svbc.sg regarding master classes and other activities.

“… Agam’s musical oeuvre also included some expansive alapanas, swara-play and languidly-paced ghazals. All fitted amazingly into the East-West sonic blend.” - The HinduTake the sounds of Dream Theater, Rush and Iron Maiden, mix them with the musical idioms of carnatic music, and what you get is a scintillating contemporary sound that appeals to the young and old alike. That’s the music of Agam, a group of carnatic rockers part of the new generation of musicians who are reinventing the classical experience.This November, the multiple award-winning band returns to Esplanade with their first full-length concert outside of India.Derived from an ancient Tamil word, the name Agam means “inner self” and is the group’s creative mantra, so to speak. The Bangalore-based band describes its music as carnatic meets progressive rock, the combination of classical melodic scales and rhythm structures, and western aesthetic principles.Formed in 2003 by a group of former schoolmates, the seven-man outfit got their break in 2007 after winning a national televised band hunt judged by Oscar-winning Indian composer, AR Rahman. Following gigs around South India, Agam went on to perform at high profile music festivals in India, which gained them popularity on a national level.Their debut album, The Inner Self Awakens, was released in 2012 with over 4,000 copies sold, topping the independent album chart on Flipkart. Regular performers at South India’s Hard Rock Café, they have also appeared on television, most notably on MTV’s Coke Studio as a featured producer. The group also collaborates with musicians, including highly-acclaimed playback singer Shreya Ghoshal and Aruna Sairam, to name a few.
