The CCKSS Choir is an award-winning, all-girls choir which sings and performs songs of a variety of genres, formats and languages.
For the 2015 Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation (SYF AP), 2 French songs and 1 Korean song were selected. Students were first taught how to pronounce each syllable of the various songs that were chosen for our SYF AP. Following this, a French Choir Conductor was engaged to teach and fine tune the Choir’s pronunciation of the French words in the 2 French songs. This session was conducted during the March holidays. The students then took it upon themselves to learn and master all the songs. Emcees were also appointed early, trained and their speeches vetted and practised during rehearsals.
In addition to our participation in the SYF Arts Presentation and B-Dazzled Show Choir competition, the Choir also supported school events such as our yearly Chinese New Year, Speech Day, National Day celebration, Deepavali celebration, and the Year-end Performing Arts concerts.
