Founded in 1991, Raffles Voices is the choir of Raffles Institution, one of the premier secondary schools in Singapore.
Our choir is a SATB boys choir and has a wide repertoire, ranging from negro spirituals to classical pieces to asian pieces. To date, we have held a total of 6 public concerts and performed at many more. Music Extravaganza was held in July 2002 at the Raffles Institution Lecture Theatre 1. Though it was a mini-concert, it was a roaring success. The concert ended of with "Heal The World" by Michael Jackson, with all 5 Musical Groups of Raffles Institution giving the audiences a Grand Finale. We also hold yearly carolling sessions during the Christmas season.
In November 2002, we embarked on a trip to Prague for an international choral competition, 'The Festival of Advent & Christmas Music', in which we attained a Bronze award. We also toured Major Cities in Germany like Frankfurt.
In March 2001, we clinched a gold award at both the SYF Central Judging. That was our third consecutive gold award since 1997.
Since our founding, our choir has grown from a modest size of nine members to the present strength of over a hundred. Our resident conductor is Mr Toh Ban Sheng and our teacher advisors are Mdm. Charmaine Chiang and Mrs. Koh Keok Keong.
