SINGAPORE – The French, German, Korean and Filipino Catholic communities will hold a joint Advent concert on Sunday Dec 13 at 5.00pm in the Marymount Chapel at Good Shepherd Convent.
Also, some Singaporean choir members from Church of the Holy Trinity will lend their voices and talent to the concert.
The event will be a first, as members of the various foreign Catholic communities gather for an Advent concert. It was initiated by the French-speaking group, which roped in the other communities.
Coordinator for Francophone Catholic Community of Singapore Jean-Philippe Malard said that the concert is “an opportunity to meet the other Catholic communities in Singapore”.
Some 15 to 20 members from each community will be carolling in their native language before coming together as one to sing in English.
Prayers will be said in French, German, Korean and Tagalog, while The Lord’s Prayer will be said in English.
Admission is free and open to all.
