Voices of Singapore Ladies Choir consists of semi-professional singers, musicians, teachers, as well as passionate amateurs who are eager to discover new experiences through music-making and developing a deeper understanding of the nation's cultural heritage.
Formally founded in 2014 as VOCO Singapore Ladies Choir by Artistic Director Darius Lim, they are the first independent all-female choir in Singapore. The choir has performed with Philomela (Finland), University of London Chamber Choir, The Coronation Singers, and numerous other ensembles.
In June 2016, the choir embarked on their first international European tour, where they travelled to give concerts in Amsterdam, Krakow, London (England), Great Rissington and Cardiff (Wales). During the tour, the choir was awarded the 2nd Prize in the Chamber Choir category of the 2016 Cracovia Cantans International Choir Competition in Krakow, Poland. The choir most recently received the Gold award at the 2021 World Choir Festival.
The choir joined the Voices of Singapore Choral Society at its inception in 2019 and was renamed Voices of Singapore Ladies Choir.
Voices of Singapore Ladies Choir rehearses weekly on Fridays, 7:45pm to 10pm and welcomes individuals aged 18 and up. There is a quarterly membership fee, which goes towards score, administrative and venue costs.

During the strange and trying times of the Covid-19 Pandemic, this period inspired the composer to write about the tenacity of the human spirit. The work set to the sacred text of "Ave Maria" presents a reflective and prayerful call for hope and harmony in the world - and in oneself.
