Varsity Voices 2018: Palette

An artist uses different strokes and a palette of colours to bring a picture to life. Likewise, The NUSChoir seeks to tell the diverse stories and ambience from all over the world through the varying tones of music and the mixture of voices from our singers.

Feel the wrath of God with Iuppiter by Michael Ostryzga and marvel at the brilliance of the northern lights with Rivers of Light by Eriks Esenvalds. Embrace the tranquil and serene motif of a sitter nestled in the heart of a bamboo forest with Zechariah Goh’s Zhu Li Guan.

With every individual’s voice blending together to produce one cohesive sound, Varsity Voices ’18: Palette encompasses the variety of tones in the songs that The NUSChoir is performing this year, as we gear up for Choir of the World competititon in  Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.
