A Night With the (Barefoot) PSPA Singers Rehearsal


 Following a successful performance at Perak Bar last month, the choir is now busy preparing for their upcoming PSPA Singers Concert on 16 November 2013. We sneaked into their practice session and shared what we saw.




In a relaxed mood, the choir leader, Marianne Poh ran down the performance details with the members.


The choir members studying the performance notes with Marianne Poh. It certainly wasn’t an easy task since all singers are part-timers and their togetherness are driven solely by passion and love for music.

The PSPA Singers Presents : Voices from Vienna to Broadway

                                               “He who sings frightens away his ills”
                                               - Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote

A journey through the ages in the world of singing does not only stop at classics or contemporaries.
The PSPA Singers are proud to present such a performance together with three prominent singers from Thailand. The PSPA choir members are from all walks of life and they will not be belting out just songs but well known repertoires as well.

The performance has an interesting programme. The first half of the show consists of repertoires by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart from his well-known operas : Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte.
These comedic (buffa) operas reflect a lighter singing style instead of the stereotypically dramatic and tragic styles. The character of Don Juan in Don Giovanni portrays a fictional libertine (undesirable) and seducer. The character of Don Alfonso in Così fan tutte (“Thus do all women”), was considered by many as Mozart’s comedic gem, a cynical character faces a test of faithfulness in love and romance. Although classified as a comic opera, it blends in melodrama as well and was a revelation then in a rather uptight society.
The second half performance will consist of musicals through the ages from the light to the serious. Amongst those includes songs from the 1959 musical, the Sound of Music, with “My Favourite Things, Edelweiss” and the epic romantic musical Les Misérables with “One Day More, Do You Hear The People Sing”.
