"The aim and final reason of all music should be
nothing else but the Glory of God and
the refreshment of the Spirit"
- J.S. Bach

Who We Are

The Canticle Singers is a voluntary chorale established in 1992 and perhaps offers perhaps the widest choral repertoire in the country.  We have more than 24 productions under our belt, which have benefited various charities, non-governmental organizations and deserving causes in the country as well as in Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and the Philippines.

The Canticle Singers 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.  In 2012, we  hosted and presented the world acclaimed Philippines Madrigal Singers in concert in the Klang Valley.
