Choral Night at the Asian Civilizations Museum

Christianity-in-Asia

Since May this year, we’ve been trying to work in collaboration with the Asian Civilizations Museum (ACM) for their ongoing exhibition “Christianity in Asia”.

And we’re stoked to share that 6 groups will be performing selections of their repertoire to allow the public to appreciate the spectrum of Christian Sacred Music.

Carillon Techonologies has also kindly sponsored the use of the Harmoni Organ (Johannes), a chance to be up close & explore for those curious about the instrument.

Activities to engage the kids will also be set up on level 1.
Come on down for an evening with the family: discovery activities, art, music and an enriching experience!
