The ACJC Alumni Choir Tour 2019
The Anglo-Chinese Junior College Alumni Choir, Singapore
The Anglo-Chinese Junior College Alumni Choir comprises singers of various ages who have been inspired by their time in the College Choir and are eager to continue performing choral music. Integrity, an eagerness to learn and a pursuit of excellence are values shared by choristers across the years and unite the choir as one committed to blessing through music.
Over the years, the choir has broadened its musical horizons and is privileged to perform original works by composers from both Singapore and abroad. Besides singing in the annual An Evening with Friends concert in May and presenting an Advent concert each December, the choir has recorded an album, Prayers and Poems, of specially commissioned pieces. Plans to commission more new music by world-class composers in the near future are currently in the works. The choir embarks on its fourth overseas tour this June, during which it will put up a joint concert with Berlin choir Vokalsystem, and participate in the 22nd Alta Pusteria Choral Festival in South Tyrol, Italy.
Amid these exciting activities, The ACJC Alumni Choir remains a group of friends bound together by a passion for choral singing and a desire to grow as an ensemble. At its heart, the choir firmly believes in making music that touches and brings joy to its audience.
Valarie Wilson read Music at King’s College, London. She studied piano at the Royal Academy of Music under Antonietta Notariello, and is an Associate of the Royal College of Music.
