SSO 2012/13 Season Announced

And the vocal concerts are few but woah.... If I were in Singapore I would not miss the Messiah on 9 November for its star-studded cast: John Nelson conducting with counter-tenor Lawrence Zazzo, tenor Richard Croft and bass-baritone Nathan Berg (no idea who soprano Mary Wilson is but she's praobably just as great).

Then there's the 5 April 2013 concert of Britten's War Requiem (aaaahhhhhh!!!!!) Its such a profound piece of music that really has to be heard live to experience its full fragmented impact. The concert also features coloratura tenor superstar Barry Banks (though I don't expect him to break into his trademark Rossinian trills during the concert). A certain Juliane Banse completes the season's vocal highlights on 25 Jan 2013 with Berlioz's Les nuits d'été followed by an encore of Abscheulicher! from Beethoven's Fidelio. Check out the Events Page for more details.
