VOICES - A Festival of Song 2016
KR Acapella was invited to perform at the Esplanade Concourse for VOICES - A Festival of Song 2016. We were very humbled by the opportunity that was given to us to sing at Esplanade. This performance was one that brought all six of us together, both alumni
and current residents of Kent Ridge Hall, and together we made music that we will definitely never forget.
We spent weeks and countless practices trying to perfect our repertoire. Although our performance was not our best, it was easy to say that the process was definitely worth all the hard work. It was a wonderful and unforgettable experience for each and
every one of us, especially for the two freshmen in the group who had never performed in front of such a huge audience.
What I learned
in particular was that each of us had our different strengths and weaknesses; but instead of letting that get in our way, we drew from each other’s strengths and helped each other with our weaknesses. We complemented each other really well
and really had a whale of time preparing for that very performance.
In addition, we really enjoyed the many performances that each group put up alongside us, in particular, the internationally renowned acapella group from the Philippines, Acappellago, who have been champions in various competitions. It was an
honour to sing alongside such talented artists and bask in their presence and their music. We were very proud to be able to represent KR Acapella and Kent Ridge Hall to perform at the Esplanade.
