Synopsis

In celebration of the 10th edition of Voices - A Festival of Song, this specially produced A Cappella Gala brings together three unique and outstandingly talented vocal bands. Each known for their signature styles, Singapore favourites 1023 and MICappella, will be joined by top Filipino a cappella band, Acapellago.

 

Look forward to an evening of familiar pop, Mandopop and Singaporean songs, as well as some jazz standards that celebrate Singapore’s musical and cultural diversity with 1023. A special treat will include their international premiere of Mambo Jambo Medley—a cheeky tribute to the uniquely Singaporean clubbing phenomenon of the same name, made popular in the late ‘90s and early 2000’s. MICappella will perform their signature song One Night in Beijing and their original 我的Party Time. Not to be missed either is Acapellago’s Queen of the Night and Burlesque.

 

No matter your jam—childhood folk songs you can sing along with or toe-tapping classics that you know the dance moves to, this concert will have something for audiences of all ages to enjoy.

Formed in 2015, the six-member vocal band puts a fresh spin on classics with arrangements featuring traditional and modern music elements. With their multi-genre, multilingual repertoire, 1023’s forte lies in a cappella music that embodies the all-inclusive Singaporean spirit.

 

This year, as part of Voices - A Festival of Song’s 10th anniversary, 1023 is excited to take stage with the Voices Festival Choir and to showcase the versatility of vocal music by marrying contemporary a cappella and choral music.
