The Bukit View Show Choir comprises of 34 jovial and fun-loving choir members.
In 2017, we practised very hard for the Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation at SOTA in April and our hard work paid off. We obtained a Certificate of Accomplishment for our efforts. In July, we participated in B’dazzled, held at the RWS Theatre in Sentosa. We maintained our Silver award by performing songs from the series The Descendants.
For bonding activities, the choir tried out something new and planned an Amazing Race cum BBQ night for the members. We were fortunate to have the support of our alumni members and parents; who gamely baked muffins, bought satay for our members and stayed throughout our activity. In June, we attended a choir concert performed by The Youth Choir at CHIJMES. In August, we were very blessed to have been fully sponsored by Hong Leong Foundation to attend the show “Forbidden City” by SRT.
In 2018, the choir has been exploring more acapella music and interesting choral works on top of testing the boundaries of our voices. We participated in our first the Voices of Singapore Festival at CHIJMES to positive reviews.
In July, the Choir hosted Secondary 1 and 2 students from a campus affiliated to Nanjing Normal University Shuren Campus (南京师范大学附属中学树人学校) during CCA and were so warm and friendly that the students commented upon saying goodbye, “Wow! They are so enthusiastic!”.
This comment encapsulates the spirit through which the Choir goes about our practices – with gusto and gumption. We brought that same spirit with us to the exchange programme at Unity Secondary School during the September holidays. Our Presidents Zhi Shan and Aditi shared our usual warm up routine for the combined schools choir of over 80 people. And in mid September just before CCA stand down, the Choir bid a personal farewell to Mr Vasuthevan, our Principal by serenading him with a lovely selection of choral music in the comfort of our own rehearsal space.
Currently, the Choir is busy preparing for our first solo concert entitled “Feelin’ Good” to be held at the Arts House on 16 November 2018.
Moving forward to 2019 and beyond, the choir seeks to challenge the boundaries of our voices and minds and remain faithful to the friendships forged by our shared experience in singing together.
– To discover more about our strengths and capabilities
– To learn to sing together and blend with one another
– To learn to work together as a choral team
– To learn to socialize with one another
