3rd Singapore International Choral Festival - 10th to 13th August 2016
Over the summer, the Senior Choir rehearsed incessantly to prepare for a competition and performance tour to Singapore. The 52 DGS choristers, accompanied by teachers and old girls, participated in a choral workshop with Dr. Kari Turunen, an outreach performance at the Asian Civilization Museum, and a choral exchange with choirs from Hong Kong, Xinjiang, as well as students from Nanyang Girls' High School and Hwa Chong Institution. Meanwhile, the choir competed and were awarded Gold Medals in two categories: Equal Voices 19 years and below, and Musica Sacra.
With God's abundant blessings, we were selected as a Grand Prix finalist and eventually captured the Champion and Special Conductor Prize with a performance of a commissioned piece by Hong Kong composer Austin Yip, and the famous Chinese folksong "Picking Tea Leaves." Their winning performance can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofDli2gisUQ&feature=youtu.be&t=52m
Thanks must be given to our Headmistress, Mrs. Stella Lau, for her unfailing guidance and support for our musicians.
