Orientale Concentus, conceptualised in 2008 with the purpose of promoting international arts and cultural exchange and youth choral music development, has seen a successful run across China, Taiwan and South Korea. Participants in earlier editions not only hail from host countries, but also from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and even the United Kingdom. The upcoming seventh edition of the festival, scheduled to take place from 9 to 13 July 2014, at the School of the Arts marks the first time it would be held in Singapore. It is expected to attract close to 2,000 participants from 40 to 50 choirs around the world.
In addition to the choral competition and master classes which are conducted by renowned adjudicators, the festival programme will incorporate community programmes aimed at raising social awareness, developing character and civic mindedness in the youth participants. These community programmes, organised by Dialogue in the Dark (DiD) Singapore, comprise educational workshops that inculcate empathy, non-visual communication, team work, confidence and self-awareness as well as a unique and innovative concert series “Concert in the Dark” aimed at providing an authentic music experience without the glitz and glamour of visual effects and costumes.
