Come listen to the boisterous bellows of our brothers and boyfriends as they belt out ballades and ditties from their already very quirky repertoire of choral songs from native lands and foreign shores. Given their dexterity in handling multiple tongues and part-harmonisation, don’t miss this extravaganza and come get intimate with the very sensuous vocals of the eight suave ambassadors from the Singapore Men’s Chorus.
The Singapore Men’s Chorus, or affectionately known as the SMC, is a group of Singapore men of all ages and backgrounds, singing TTBB originals and arrangements of the favourites and the foreign. Comprising approximately 30 members, the SMC was formed in 2005 and now stages an annual concert season entertaining up to a 1000 aficionados and still gaining popularity. On a more regular basis, the SMC Ambassadors is a smaller group of eight members singing in more intimate settings and showing off the prowess of ensemble camaraderie. The SMC and SMC Ambassadors are led by choral directors, Jason Ong and Gregory Chen.
The 8 members of the SMC Ambassadors are Andrews Ang, Anthony Ong, Elki Siew, Ernest Thio, Hector Tan, Joseph Lum, Sean Goh and Simon Khoo.
There will be a post-concert discussion with the directors and choristers.
