Achievements of the CCA
Attained the Accomplishment Award in the Singapore Youth Festival (Arts Presentation) 2017

The Ang Mo Kio Secondary Choir is a 4-part choir with a current strength of 48 members. The choir works with their conductor, Ms Susanna Pua, every Wednesday and Friday afternoons.

During choir practice, students start with vocal warm-ups and build their singing skills such as breathing control, voice projection and pitching. There are also some simple physical exercises to strengthen their stamina and improve their posture. To achieve music literacy the choir members go through a course based on the ABRSM syllabus.
  
Besides improving singing skills, the choir also aims to instill choral discipline, promote teamwork, and build confidence in the student. These values are achieved through the annual bonding camp organised by the student leaders. 

In March 2017, the school choir participated in the Voices of Singapore Festival at CHIJMES Hall. The choir members performed “Ave Verum Corpus”, and “Ima (This Moment)” and their performance was well received by the audience. Another Choral Exchange Programme was also organised during the September holidays. It was held at Nanyang Polytechnic and students had the opportunity to interact with members of the Voice Ensemble of Nanyang Polytechnic.

During the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Arts Presentation 2017, our choir’s presentation of three pieces, namely: “Bunga Sayang”, “Ave Verum Corpus”, and “Ima (This Moment)”, clinched an Accomplishment Award.

The school choir is also involved in various events organised by the school, such as the Awards Day, National Day Celebrations and AMKsian Showcase. On Awards Day, the choir members celebrated the success of fellow schoolmates with a rendition of their SYF pieces. During National Day Celebrations, 5 choir members led the whole school in singing National Day songs namely “In A Heartbeat”, “Our Singapore” and “Because It’s Singapore”.     

The choir hopes to share the joy of music with the whole school community through their passion for singing.
