7 by ONE - a unique choral experience

To all choral enthusiasts and anyone with an interest in the performing arts:

Established in June 2009, ONE is led by Ms Lim Ai Hooi, a prominent conductor in the Singapore choral scene. Consisting of 30 experienced choristers, ONE’s vision is to challenge conventional choral delivery in Singapore to bring about a new dimension of choral performance.

Following two sellout concerts, we are delighted to present to you the third installation of 7 by ONE, intended to engage the 5 senses, tickle the 6th sense with surprises to achieve the 7th sense of joy, while exploring the range of human emotions. In this concert, ONE shares a soulful account of a singer's journey through pain, denial, grief and peace as she loses her voice. But finds herself.

7 by ONE will be held on 4th March 7.30pm, 18th March 3pm & 7.30pm at SOTA Concert Hall. Tickets are at $20 each.

Please email ticketing.one@gmail.com for orders and enquiries. Also, check out our event page for more information.

Looking forward to seeing you at 7 by ONE!
