Children's Choir

Grooming the voices of our next generation

About Us

The Voices of Singapore Children's Choir was formed in 2019 by acclaimed Singaporean Conductor-Composer Darius Lim through a series of nationwide auditions. Today, the historic Capitol Theatre is the Home of the 180-strong children's choir and boasts one of the most comprehensive music choral training programmes on the island.

 

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 6 different training and performing choirs that is focused on grooming some of the most talented young singers. The choir's comprehensive training programme includes international exchanges with world class children's choirs. The choir has also invited to sing for the 40th Anniversary of the Speak Mandarin Campaign, graced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.  

 

The Children's Choir seeks to develop children from all walks of life as singers, individuals and performers, placing great focus on character building and Singaporean identity. The children's choir now conducts yearly auditions every Mid and End year to continue its mission of grooming young voices.
