On 2 June 2018, Greendale Chorale took part in Evocation 2018, a concert organised by EVOKX. EVOKX is a young adult choir who seeks to involve youth in choral production while raising awareness of social causes.
In Evocation 2018, 5 choirs, including Greendale Chorale, came together to help raise funds for Community Health Assessment Team, a national outreach programme under the Institute of Mental Health. We had a great time learning from other choirs and performing the finale item, Omnia Sol (Let Your Heart Be Staid), with everyone!
Orientale Concentus 11
Greendale Chorale took part in Orientale Concentus 11 on 2 July 2018, held at SOTA Concert Hall. In this international competition, choirs from all over the world came to compete for the grand prize of $20,000!
We saw choirs from all over South East Asia, as well as from China, Taiwan and South Korea.
In our category, we faced off quality choirs from Philippines, Indonesia and other secondary school choirs from Singapore. We are proud to announce that of the six choirs in our category, only 2 were awarded Gold and we are one of them!
It was an amazing experience as we managed to invite one of the adjudicators to come to our school to conduct a masterclass for us. We also had the opportunity to listen to the winners of all the different categories on 4 July in Esplanade Concert Hall. Indeed, with these learning experiences, we aim to do our best for SYF next year!
