Choir

The Mayflower Secondary School Choir is a group of vibrant, young people who share a common love in singing. The Choir was awarded Certificates of Distinction in the 2015 and 2017 Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation. In 2014 and 2017, the Choir also received Distinctions in the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) Choral Singing (intermediate) examinations.

In November 2016, the Choir performed at the Esplanade Concert Hall in the Limelight Series, at the invitation of Esplanade.  The Choir took the opportunity to collaborate with other art forms such as dance and visual art, premiering its first commissioned choral work composed by Professor Bernard Tan. Shortly after, the Choir embarked on an overseas choral trip in Hong Kong, having a public performance and school choral exchanges with two schools. In January 2017, the Choir was also invited to perform at the Guild in Concert @ National Gallery Singapore. Notably in November 2017, the choir was invited by Odyssey Dance Theatre to be the chorus for their opening production “Are We?” of the 9th Xposition ‘O’ Contemporary Dance Fiesta, involving many international artists and multi-disciplinary artistry.

Singing a wide variety of choral music, the MFSS Choir aspires to have more opportunities to engage the community through singing, to grow in the pursuit of choral excellence, and to deepen the bonds shared through music-making. The Choir has been conducted by Mrs Tay Sze Chen since 2014.
