Cor Novum: A New Heart


The recital will take place: 23rd October 2016 Venue & Time: Church of the Holy Family, 8:00pm – 9:00pm

Ticket: $15 | payment to be made through:


*Please note, as there are no e-tickets, once you have made your donation/payment through giving.sg, please forward your e-receipt to me (through FB message) or your contact in the fundraising choir so we can note ticketing needs.

This small recital in this Year of Mercy is to help raise funds for Caritas, and to bring together current members, alumni and friends of Genesis II Choir to lend their God-given talent to this cause.

In conjunction with the parish’s 80th Anniversary, this fundraiser is also an opportunity to share beloved sacred choral music, a rich Catholic legacy, alongside modern music with the public, and the message behind the Year of Mercy.

The repertoire ranges from the likes of classics such as Salve Regina and O Magnum Mysterium to contemporary favourites such as Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah and Twila Paris’ The Warrior is a Child.

We would also like to be able to help raise awareness of Caritas as a charitable organisation and what it does: 100% of ticketing proceeds will benefit Caritas Singapore.
