Esplanade Presents

A Tapestry of Sacred Music

28 Apr – 1 May 2023

Encounter the beauty of sacred traditions from familiar and distant lands.

A Tapestry of Sacred Music was launched by Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay in 2009. The festival offers the rare opportunity for everyone to encounter the beauty of these varied cultural expressions practised by communities all over the world, in a secular setting. Over the years, we have presented more than 36 religious denominations, as well as the sacred art forms of 56 different communities, creating a rich tapestry of some of humanity’s most affecting and powerful musical expressions.


Since 2017, we have gone a step further and made this festival a completely free one for all to enjoy, so that there are no barriers to this aural and visual celebration. Esplanade is a charity and not-for-profit organisation, and this year, A Tapestry of Sacred Music is made possible with the generous support of Principal Sponsor The Silent Foundation. Help keep this festival free by making a contribution at donation boxes placed around Esplanade, or donate online through
