SYNOPSIS

Always pushing the boundaries, The Young KL Singers (YKLS) show choir will be exploring the music of Björk, the multi-hyphenate Icelandic artist, in the concert Aurora from 9th to 12th August in Pentas 2 at KLPAC.

In her 40 years in the music industry, Björk has defied genres and labels, blending an incredible range of musical styles into her work, ranging from electronic, pop, classical, and avant-garde. The Aurora tribute celebrates the diversity of Björk's music across the years.

In keeping with the spirit of her work, it will be creative, experimental and eclectic topped off with YKLS' signature quirkiness. The YKLS show choir, directed by Ian Chow, and Mak Chi Hoe (who is also the Music Director), will be the first choir in Malaysia to stage a production of this nature.

The members of YKLS have developed their own unique arrangements of Björk's music, experimenting with percussion, acapella, music processing and even choreography. Furthermore, this production will feature visual projection designs by the students of Saito University College, one of the most reputable design colleges in Malaysia.

Whether you are a fan of this visionary artist, or someone new to her music, Aurora promises a fresh, and innovative experience that will excite your senses.
