With 25th December behind our backs at the strike of 12 midnight, gone is the day of us wishing each other “Feliz Navidad” (Merry Christmas in Spanish) and singing joyful christmas carols with our friends and families. As we usher in Boxing day and open our presents from our “Secret Santas”, one would think that there is probably nothing much more to look forward to, other than the upcoming new year just round the corner as 2012 comes to an end. However, I am extremely excited and looking forward to January next year!! This is because SYCES will be going to… Wait for it… Hokkaido, Japan!! 😀
With the THREE instalment having come full circle after 6 long years, we are once again embarking on another trip to Japan, where we will have another combined performance!! 🙂 I honestly cannot suppress the excitement and joy of meeting up with the people from Ateneo Chamber Singers and Gaia Philharmonic Choir. I am looking forward to the opportunity to sing together with them again and I am sure that it is going to be a night filled with wonderful music and choral camaraderie.
Of course, how can I forget the ever energetic Ko Matsushita and happy-go-lucky Jonathan Velasco?? I am sooo looking forward to being able to be conducted by them in our 3-choir combined pieces!! Of course, we will also have our lovely Ms Jennifer Tham conducting a combined piece composed by our very own local talent, Americ Goh! Wah… just typing down all these things is already making me uber excited!!
With just 2 more practices to go before we fly over to Hokkaido, I am all geared up to put on a wonderful concert together with ACS and Gaia from 4-7th Jan 2013! Looks like SYCES is going to have a belated white christmas after all!! Snow angels, anyone? 😛
