Amadeus Choral Society presents Triptych

Source:  www.amadeus.org.sg

Fueled by the love for singing & an impetus to spread the joy of song, the Amadeus Choral Society, consisting of individuals from all walks of life, was established in 1994.
Over the years, Amadeus grew & achieved sparkling recognition at numerous Singapore and international choral platforms.
Returning to the stage since their last performance in 2004, Amadeus will present a concert repertoire spanning a cappella & accompanied contemporary Asian songs, early baroque music excerpts from Memba Jesu Nostri by Dietrich Buxtehude, as well as traditional sacred music pieces such as Sicut Cervus by G.P. da Palestrina, O Vos Omnes by T.L. Victoria, & Exsultate Justi by Lodovico Viadana
Highlighting the concert is the world premier of Triptych, a three-movement Chinese folk piece composed by renowned Singaporean composer Dr. Zechariah Goh Toh Chai, recipient of the National Arts Council (NAC) Young Artist Award 2003.
Commissioned by Amadeus, with support from the NAC, this piece of emotionally alluring & imagery-rich music is not to be missed.
Join Amadeus & their guest performers as they unfold the triptych - a cross-cultural & timeless journey in music!
