Our Team


“If everyone started off the day singing, just think how happy they’d be.”
Lauren Myracle


The International Festival Chorus (Singapore) is governed by a Committee of volunteers from within the Chorus, under the musical direction of our Artistic Director.


The Chorus consists of singers from varying backgrounds, diverse nationalities, and with a range of musical skills and experiences. Many of our members are actively involved in our performances and rehearsals: leading each of our sections (soprano, alto, tenor, bass), stage management, décor, design, ticket sales, organising social events, email administration, photography and several other roles that are integral to making our concerts enjoyable for our audiences and for ourselves. The Chorus has also had the pleasure of collaborating with fine conductors, musicians and ensembles throughout its history.
