BACKGROUND OF THE CANTICLE SINGERS
TCS is an accomplished voluntary chorale established in Kuala Lumpur in 1992. We embrace a repertoire of choral of music which enjoys wide audience appeal; with entertaining elections which seek to uplift, inspire, encourage, provide hope and share our thoughts and feelings. Our music encompasses a wide genre of musicals, pop, rock, folk, jazz, lounge and semi-classical music.
TCS comprises volunteer singers from all walks of life and different occupations and backgrounds. There are teachers, bankers, accountants, students, business professionals, etc., who have varying levels of musical training and experiences. All our singers are volunteers and hence unpaid. Our members are offered opportunities to improve and advance their performing skills, as we enrich and widen the scope of our heritage and encourage a keener appreciation of music and the performing arts; contributing to the creation of a more artistically sensitive and vibrant community.
TCS has done 25 productions to date and possibly offers one of the most extensive concert repertoires in the country. Our larger productions have been done as benefit concerts for a range of charities, non-governmental organisations and other worthy causes, touching lives in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Philippines.
TCS was awarded The Boh Cameronian Arts Award for Best Group Vocals in 2014 and 2011 and won 6 nominations for the same award in 2014, 2012 and 2011.
