The relationship between our bodies and the spiritual is intrinsically intertwined. It is at that cusp of individual pain and communal ecstacy, the body spasming beyond our own control that we find transcendence to something bigger and greater than ourselves - when we render the impossible, tangible. For their third concert presentation, “Impossible Things”, Wayfarer Sinfonietta explores the light, that we find through pain and suffering, in each other and ourselves.


Featuring a compelling blend of contemporary classical works, "Impossible Things" includes the ethereal Illumine by Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir, the enigmatic song cycle, Impossible Things, by American composer Nico Muhly, the evocative Nocturne by Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho, and the energetic Shaker Loops by American composer John Adams.


The concert features tenor soloist David Charles Tay, violin soloist Chan Yoong Han, led by Wayfarer Sinfonietta’s artistic director Lien Boon Hua.
