VOCE Men's Choir was founded in 2016 by local conductor/composer Mr. Darius Lim. The choir currently consists of professional and amateur musicians, as well as passionate singers from a diverse range of backgrounds with the common yearning to make excellent choral music of the highest standards.
One of the few all-male choirs in Singapore, VOCE has been recognised both locally and in the region for their unique blend and stylistic approach to their music. 2018 saw the choir performing alongside the world-renowned Vienna Boy's Choir at the Esplanade Concert Hall in January, followed by the choir's first European debut in Lisbon, Portugal with local ensemble the Coronation Singers in June.
Since then, VOCE Men's Choir has collaborated in masterclass settings with UK's Voces8 in 2018, and acclaimed choral conductor, Susanna Saw, as part of their Kuala Lumpur tour in 2019.
As the Founder of the VOCE Singapore Men's Choir, Darius serves as the Choir's Musical Director. One of the few leading new-generation Asian Conductor-Composers of his time, his works have been featured both in the region and beyond.
