Choir Camp I

This has been a really hectic week for me, I had to run 2 choir camps, rehearse with several different choirs, perform with Key Elements for A Cappella Fest, and prepare for concert with Consonance. The week started with 2 days of camp with Raffles Girl's Primary school, which included an exchange with River Valley Primary, Edgefield Primary and Hong Wen School.

This is Greg, who's helping me with RGPS, he's giving an introduction and laying out the objectives and schedule of the camp.

And here's Greg rehearsing the choir.


During break time, the girls would come round and tinkle on the keyboard.

And of course no camp would be complete without games. Here's a game of 'Monster' where teams are supposed to form a monster with their combined effort. This one is a five-headed monster.

Here's another interpretation of a Five-headed and seven-legged monster.

And then there was "dog and bone".


The camp ended on a high note, the children were happy but I was exhausted. Had to go home and crash.

Consonance Presents
20th Century Choral Music

15 & 16 September
Esplanade Recital Studio
7:30 P.M.
$18 (Free Seating)


Consonance is a youth choir made up of people from various backgrounds and schools but brought together by a common passion in singing. Just a month ago, on 2 Aug, we went for our ABRSM choral singing examination and has been awarded with a Dinstinction!

This will be our 6th year in music making, and we're looking forward to sharing an eclectic selection of pieces from the haunting harmonies of Debussy to the exuberant rhythms of Latin American music to the jazzy rearrangement of familiar Mandarin folk tunes and many more! So make a date with us and come on this exciting journey through the choral music of the 20th century. Contact Lin Zhengchang (90075549) or email to for ticketing enquiry. Hope to see you there!
