“Prayer for Peace” is a special parting gift written for mentor Jennifer Tham, manager Albert Yeo and the many friends and fellow singers of the SYC Ensemble Singers as I leave Singapore for further studies at the Kodály Institute of the Liszt Academy of Music in fall, 2011.
Just as SYC seem to bring rain every time we sing Alberto Grau’s “Hermana Illuvia”, it is hoped that we will bring peace everywhere, every time we sing this work. Prayer for Peace was premiered by the SYC Ensemble Singers under the direction of Jennifer Tham on 30 August 2014 at SOTA Concert Hall (Singapore).
