Group Description

Vox Camerata was established with a mission; to make good choral music accessible to anyone who is keen on making choral music, regardless of their musical knowledge, background and experience.

We drew inspiration from our namesake in the spirit that we are simply people coming from all walks of life to discuss and learn more about the melodious delights our voices can actually create. Some of us knew nothing about singing, except for the days of music classes back in primary school; others have varied experiences in choirs at various levels or just plainly enjoy belting out the occasional song in a karaoke bar. In a nutshell, we've all been drawn like a moth to a candle-flame, in our weekly discovery of the simple delight, of making music.

Our namesake, the Florentine Camerata, originated from a group of humanists, musicians, poets and intellectuals in late Renaissance Florence that gathered under the patronage of Count Giovannide Bardi to discuss and guide trends in the arts, especially music and drama. They met mainly from about 1573 until the late 1580s, at the house of Bardi. Known members of the group, besides Bardi, included Giulio Caccini, Pietro Strozzi, and Vincenzo Galilei (the father of the astronomer Galileo Galilei).

Vox Camerata, has, since its inception, organized and participated in numerous performances. Its maiden recital was held in November 2004 at the function room of the Kg. Ubi Community Center. Since then, the choir has gone on to bring its annual Musica Intimae concerts to the Legends@Fort Canning, the Esplanade Recital Studio and the Chamber@Arts House. This year the choir instated a new concert series entitled Collegia Musica as a firm commitment to our mission in bringing good choral music to the community.
