The Voices of Singapore Children's Choir was formed in 2019 by acclaimed Singaporean Conductor-Composer Darius Lim. Today, the historic Capitol Theatre is the Home of the 290-strong children's choir and boasts one of the most comprehensive music choral training programmes on the island.
With a mission of nurturing children living in Singapore to the highest levels of choral music, VOSCC is led by a team of some of the nation's most experienced and renowned children's choir pedagogues, the Voices of Singapore Children's Choir has built a progressive system of 7 different training and performing choirs that are focused on grooming some of the most talented young singers.
The choir has established connections with some of the world's best children's choirs that include the Hong Kong Children's Choir, Hamilton Children's Choir (Canada), the Berlin Children's Choir and many other top ensembles - providing opportunities for singers to be exposed to some of the world's best teaching and performance experiences.
The choir has been invited to sing for the 40th Anniversary of the Speak Mandarin Campaign, graced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and involved in recent projects such as A World Together in collaboration with HealthServe, President's Star Charity 2020, as well as the 900-Strong Singapore Virtual Choir's performance of Dick Lee's Home.
The VOS Children's Choir also works closely with the Associated Board of the Royal
Schools of Music (ABRSM) to conduct ABRSM Examinations for choirs under its wing.
The choir seeks to develop children from all walks of life as singers, individuals and performers through a holistic learning experience, placing great focus on musical development, character building and Singaporean identity. The choir now conducts bi-annual auditions every Mid and End year to continue its mission of grooming young voices, holding practices weekly on Saturdays.

choral scholars programme
The Choral Scholars Programme trains some of the country's most gifted singers. With a small number of vacancies offered each year, the Choral Scholars Programme is an extension of the VOSCC Concert Choir.
It provides an extensive music programme across multiple genres of music. Singers are expected to put up full recitals with combinations of solo and group performances: with individual attention spent to prepare singers for either advanced music certification courses or a career in music.
All singers in this programme are offered partial or full scholarships by the Voices of Singapore Choral Society.
At Voices of Singapore, we believe that music and choral singing should be made available to all. The Support-a-singer Fund helps singers in the Voices of Singapore Choral Society who are in need of financial assistance.
Contributions will directly benefit a singer with the membership or season fees for the
Voices of Singapore Community Chorus or Children’s Choir.
