New Chamber Operas!

 

This August, join chamber•sounds in a first of its kind performance in Singapore! Following a successful call for proposals for commissioning chamber operas, chamber•sounds will premiere four brand new chamber operas written specifically for them. Featured on the programme are composers Rita Ueda from Canada, Nicole Murphy from Australia, Naomi Sekiya from Japan and Chen Zhangyi from Singapore. All four chamber operas are wildly different; from shopping for shoes to an astronaut’s mind, and Emily Dickinson’s poetry to the tragic earthquake at Tohoku and its aftermath. Come prepared for an unforgettable night of music-making and drama!

Chamber.Sounds in Motion

chamber•sounds is having a concert on 21st July Sunday at the Arts House.

chamber•sounds in action this August!

Chamber•Sounds is excited to announce our upcoming recitals in August! We cordially invite you to our latest music expeditions on both 26 and 27 August 2012. First of all….

Where: Esplanade Recital Studio

When: 26th August 2012 (SUN), 5.00pm

What: Following a successful call for scores, Chamber•Sounds will present an evening of world premieres, performing new music composed by six Singaporean composers. Chamber • Sounds is a chamber ensemble comprising composers and instrumentalists with the aim of bringing local and contemporary music closer to the hearts of people. Singapore new music, with its richly diverse cultures and influences, is not easily classifiable, yet immediately recognisable as conscious or subconscious responses—filtered through composers and performers alike—to the confluence of ideas that flood cosmopolitan cities like Singapore. The result is the gradual but inexorable coalescence of the Singaporean identity through the medium of music.

Join Chamber • Sounds in this first of many concerts celebrating the music of Singapore composers.

Tickets at $20 each and are available from any chamber•sounds member! Alternatively, you can email chamber.sounds@gmail.com. Check out our Facebook event post here
