Vienna Boys Choir
13 & 15 Jan
These kids can really sing. The choir has come a long way since 1296, seeing through great musicians like Joseph Haydn, who became a chorister in the mid-1700s. It began as an ensemble for the Viennese Court, and has moved on to touring the world from 1926. Today, it consists of a family of 100 choristers, with ages between nine and 14. Join them this Saturday and Monday evening at the Victoria Concert Hall and Esplanade respectively. The repertoire will range from medieval to contemporary music.
7.30pm. Tickets are available on Sistic
Art from the Streets
13 Jan – 3 June
Street art has come a long way. Initially frowned upon and brushed off as an act of rebellion, it is now seen in a different light. In a testament to the freedom of the creative spirit, this exhibit will explore the evolution of street art through a series of live paintings and installations by some of the best. That includes Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Felipe Pantone and local artists such as Speak Cryptic.
10am to 7pm at the ArtScience Museum. Admission fees apply
M1 Singapore Fringe Festival
17 – 28 Jan
A haven for theatre, dance and music geeks, this year’s Fringe Festival returns for the 14th time. Inspired by Let’s Walk by Amanda Heng, several highlights include Displaced, a play that follows the story of three struggling female immigrants who flee to Canada, and The Immortal Sole, which dives into the patriarchal notions of female stereotypes.
