The SSCC Experience is a one-day workshop for 8 – 12-year-olds (music beginners are welcome!), which comprises a full day of learning that will culminate in an evening performance at the iconic Victoria Concert Hall! There are two dates to choose from, so keep scrolling to find out how your little one can sign up!
The SSCC Experience: Workshop and Performance at Victoria Concert Hall
Formed in 2006, the SSCC is the only children’s choir that performs with the national orchestra and has over 200 members aged between 9 and 18. Led by choirmaster Wong Lai Foon and a team of conductors and staff, the SSCC nurtures young singers’ love for music into a lifelong passion. Singing with the SSCC requires discipline and teamwork, which in turn fosters confidence and self-esteem, and helps develop important life skills in your child. The SSCC Experience will allow kiddos to peek into a day in the life of SSCC choristers, and children will get to learn about music-making, the basics of rhythms, solfeggio and choral techniques. Kids will then wrap up their experience with an evening performance at Victoria Concert Hall. Together with choristers from the children’s choir, kids will get to perform materials they have learnt during the programme. Family and friends are invited to watch the performance, so don’t forget to charge your phones!
When: 5 OR 6 September 2022, 9am – 6pm
Where: Victoria Concert Hall, 11 Empress Place, Singapore 179558
