OUR HISTORY

"Let us go singing as far as we go; the road will be less tedious."  - Virgil

The IFC’s journey started in 1974 when it was established as the adult choral body of the United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA). This journey has seen diverse repertoire from large-scale orchestral works to intimate a cappella gems from different music periods, genres, and cultures; a journey with notable highlights such as the Asian premiere of David Fanshawe’s African Sanctus, and the Singapore premiere of J.S. Bach's Johannes Passion.

 

Our history of fine conductors, singers and musicians, coupled with our huge repertory of music, are the foundation of our continuing musical and artistic mission. Building on our roots with UWCSEA, the Chorus has significantly expanded to include members from numerous countries, cultures and professions.

PREVIOUS ACCOMPLISHMENTS

As a community Chorus with a varied repertoire and a warm, gregarious stage presence, the IFC has performed to audiences around Singapore in both standalone performances and collaborative projects.
