Esplanade to Launch New Festival VOICES in December

The Esplanade-Theatres on the Bay is adding to its rostrum of festivals with the first edition of VOICES, a new event that will celebrate ensemble singing from diverse cultures and traditions. Running December 13-15, VOICES will offer six main ticketed shows and a series of free performances and talks.
Choral singing will be represented by the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, the first time the Grammy Award winning choir will perform in Singapore, while folk singing will be showcased by the singers of Khöömii ‑ throat singers from Mongolia accompanied by traditional Mongolian instruments such as the horse-head and grand fiddles and the yatga zither. Khöömii singers are able to sing at least two distinct musical notes at the same time.

One evening will be dedicated to A Cappella singing, with four established Singapore vocal groups: — Juz-B, Key Elements, MICappella and Vocaluptuous.
