IFC Goes Opera!
In May 2016 the IFC continued its musical journey of exploration by taking on a new art form: Opera! Singing operatic choruses and arias we were thrilled to be joined by three talented vocal soloists: tenor Leslie Tay of Singapore as well as soprano Ang Mei Foong and baritone Terence Au of Malaysia.
Under the guidance of our artistic director Chong Wai Lun, we learnt not only a more operatic style of singing but to include movement and drama in our performance. The sell-out audience was warmly appreciative and we were delighted to add to our musical repertoire.
The IFC presents two formal concerts a year, as well as informal and charity gigs. Each of our concerts is an opportunity to introduce exciting new repertoire to our members and our audiences.
We have embraced diverse genres of music — from classical pieces to Broadway, and folk tunes to film music.
