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.

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.

Messiah is an English-language oratorio composed by German-born English composer George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) in 1741 and it remains his best-known work. Handel worked on it with his friend and collaborator Charles Jennen. It was the latter's idea that the underlying theme of "Messiah" was to be built upon a series of scriptural verses. The text was drawn from three parts of the Bible: The Old Testament prophesying the birth of the Messiah; New Testament text on the birth of Christ, his death and his resurrection; and verses relating to Judgement Day, with the final chorus text drawn from the Book of Revelation.Hallelujah Oratorio Society (HOS) celebrates its 40th anniversary by performing this oratorio with the Jakarta Festival Chorus and Gloria Dei Cantores under the direction of HOS music director Lee Chong Min, accompanied by The Philharmonic Orchestra, along with four soloists: Colette Lam (soprano), Chia Wee Kiat (countertenor), Solomon Chong (tenor) and Caleb Woo (bass).
