Vienna Boys Choir: Fly With Me
Imagine listening to one of the most beautiful and purest voices on earth: that of the Vienna Boys Choir. Join us as we welcome Austria’s youngest ambassadors of music in the beautiful and modern Esplanade Concert Hall.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. Since 1926, 2482 Vienna Boys Choir has sung 1000 tours in 97 different countries.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.On Sundays, the boys perform with members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and of the Vienna State Opera Chorus in Vienna’s Imperial Chapel, as they have done since 1498.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 Riccardo Muti (honorary member of the Chapel Imperial), Andrés Orozco Estrada, Christian Thielemann, Simone Young.You can find out more about SVBC week at www.svbc.sg regarding master classes and other activities.

“This recording of Steve Reich’s percussion epic is thunderously exciting, thrusting us into the action.”– The Times, Mar 2018"Colin Currie Group's own recording, honed through long performance practice, brings you into a magic circle where every impact is precisely heard, every overtone burnished."– BBC Music Magazine, Jun 2018"An alluring blend of sonorities…The percussionists and the wordless voices of Synergy Vocals alike come across with a vivid presence."– Financial Times, Apr 2018"The Colin Currie Group’s performance is nothing short of a powerhouse...a visceral thrill: epic, cathartic, and (perhaps especially for pure percussion music) profoundly touching"– Arts Fuse, Apr 2018"A Drumming for this decade – and probably a few to come, too."– Editor's Choice, Gramophone, Apr 2018Hailed by Steve Reich as “one of the greatest musicians in the world today” (Herald Scotland), the Colin Currie Group, together with Synergy Vocals, bring their “thunderously exciting” (The Times) version of Steve Reich’s seminal work Drumming to Singapore in their first-ever live performance in Southeast Asia.Colin Currie Group is a virtuosic ensemble that specialises in the music of Steve Reich. Their performances of Reich’s music have been hailed by the composer as “the best I’ve ever heard” (Tehillim, Tokyo 2017).Led by Colin Currie (“the world’s finest and most daring percussionist” – Spectator), the handpicked group was formed in 2006 for a performance of Drumming at the BBC Proms to celebrate the 70th birthday of Steve Reich. Since then, they have expanded their repertoire to include many of Reich’s most popular works, including Music for 18 Musicians, Tehillim and Music for Pieces of Wood and are privileged to have the frequent presence of the composer when rehearsing and performing these works.The group’s highly anticipated recording of Drumming was released on Colin Currie Records in Spring 2018 after a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise funds, fully supported by Steve Reich who said “it will be, I am sure, the best recording of Drumming ever made”.The Colin Currie Group has appeared in concert at major halls and festivals worldwide, having made their international debut at Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall in 2012 and their European debut at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam. Recently, the group went on to give three performances of Reich’s music at the Louis Vuitton Foundation, Paris at the request of the composer himself. They will be joined by singers from Synergy Vocals, a vocal group specialising in close-microphone singing and often associated with the music of Steve Reich, John Adams, Louis Andriessen, Steven Mackey and Luciano Berio.ProgrammeReich: Music for Pieces of WoodReich: Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices and Organ (performed with Synergy Vocals)Reich: Drumming (performed with Synergy Vocals)
Kalaa Utsavam - Indian Festival of ...
“Few bands in the contemporary indie scene in the country have been able to sustain that momentum, transcending language barriers, on the back of just that one album as haveAvial.”-The HinduThere is nothing quite like the music Avial makes. Just a decade ago at a time when the indie rock scene in India was dominated by English-singing groups, the self-styled Kerala-based band made headlines with their genre-bending, moody brand of alternative Malayalam rock, written in their native tongue. Despite language differences in and outside of India, they continue to receive overwhelming responses, evident in the huge turnouts wherever they play.Not many in Indian alternative rock come close to replicating the band’s feat, or have found success producing music that permeates India’s multilingual society with such immediacy and emotional appeal. To their legions of fans all over India and the subcontinent, Avial will always be the band that “shuns all norms” (Rolling Stone India).Since 2003, Avial have been making music together, taking inspiration from a broad swathe of musical influences including electronic, folk and alternative rock, and infusing them with earthy Malayalam poetry on social and political issues. Their self-titled debut, which took four years to produce—and which swept up six awards at the Rolling Stone Jack Daniels Rock Awards in 2009—comprises eight tracks including their most popular singles Nada Nada and Chekele (a cover of a Malayalam folk song). The current line-up features vocalist Tony John, guitarist Rex Vijayan, drummer Mithun Puthenveetil and bassist Binny Isaac. Catch the legendary band as they make their debut in Singapore this November. This year also marks the 10th anniversary of their eponymous debut album.
