After 2 years of hiatus, the Metro Philharmonic Society is back in Victoria Concert Hall to present Ocean of Songs. Joined by guest choirs Vox Camerata, National University of Singapore Society (NUSSS) Choir and Chordinate Singers, this concert takes a nostalgic trip down the memory lane with a repertory of popular and folk melodies sung in Singapore, including familiar favourites heard on the TV and movies.

The songs that Metro Philharmonic Choir will be presenting include “Partridge Cries” (which will be sung in Hainanese dialect), "You are my Solace” and “Blessing” (a popular movie episode in the 50s—60s of last century). The choir will be led by Mr. Ng Eng Kee. Chordinate Singers, led by conductor Mr. Acid Pang, will be performing "Westbound from Yangguan” (music composed by Acid Pang) and “BIg Fish”. Vox Camerata Community Choir will perform local composer Zechariah Goh’s arrangement of Lok Sui Ten (a Hakka folk song) and local composer Kenneth Tay’s ‘Flowers of the Forest, among other songs. The Vox Camerata Community Choir will be conducted by Mr. Sun Boxi and Ms. Samantha Wee. NUSS Choir, conducted by Mr. Adyll Hardy, will round off the program with evergreen tunes such as ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and ‘Climb Every Mountain’.

We invite you to witness the power of choral music, connecting the different choral communities into one big family to share the joy of singing with you
