Indonesian choir raises funds for Archdiocesan needs
The Vita Voxa (Voice of Life) Choir from the Mother of the Sacred Heart Church in Jakarta singing at the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd.
A church choir from Jakarta staged a concert at the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd and helped raise funds for the Catholic Foundation’s GIFT campaign.
The Giving in Faith and Thankfulness (GIFT) campaign is aimed at realising the Archdiocese’s plan for a vibrant, missionary and evangelistic Church in Singapore.
The Vita Voxa (Voice of Life) Choir from the Mother of the Sacred Heart Church sang to a captive audience on Aug 4
Their repertoire ranged from traditional pieces such as Pietro Mascagni’s Ave Maria to more contemporary songs such as Mary Did You Know by Mark Lowry.
According to the choir, the concert was to commemorate two big Church feasts in August – the Transfiguration of the Lord on Aug 6 and the Assumption of Mary on Aug 15.
It was also to give thanks for the blessings that God has showered them over the choir’s 15 years.
The choir decided to stage this concert in Singapore so as to gain experience performing overseas.
