Making it's debut in 2014 under the baton of internationally renowned conductor Justin Freer, Singapore's own Vocal Associates Festival Chorus (VAFC) has gone from strength to strength, performing such diverse works as Howard Shore's music for The Lord of The Rings, Mahler's Symphony No. 8 and the world premiere of the Marco Polo trilogy. Under its Artistic Director Khor Ai Ming, VAFC recently performed at New York's prestigious Carnegie Hall in June 2016.
This year, VAFC will be presenting a charity Gala Concert, in aid of Lions Home for the Elders. The concert will be featuring the newly formed orchestra, ASIA VIRTUOSI, which is comprised of many of the best international artistes from Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Macao and Singapore.
