A Cappella Once More
1023 (pronounced Ten Twenty-Three), voted as one of Singapore’s favourite a cappella groups, will be presenting the first free a cappella show at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre since the return of live performances on stage.
Look forward to entertaining a cappella renditions of iconic tunes, featuring in-house arrangements and newly commissioned work by prolific arrangers in the global a cappella scene. True to 1023’s brand of a cappella music which celebrates Singapore’s rich cultural diversity, the programme features songs in different styles, genres, and languages.
1023’s set covers an eclectic – yet recognisable – selection of energetic ‘80s disco-pop hits, endearing love songs, and nostalgic favourites in a variety of languages, including Thai! Be treated to an Esplanade-exclusive premiere of several new arrangements during the show, including a heart-wrenching Hokkien ballad, and a soulful rendition of an iconic Malay hit.
The personable a cappella group, a perennial crowd-favourite, hopes to rekindle in audiences the joy of being part of a live performance again, with their signature blend of voices that’s warm, comforting and unmistakably 1023.
