The International Festival Chorus presents their concert Earworms from Everywhere on 1 May 2013, presenting choral arrangements of musical theatre, pop and movie theme songs. Here's an excerpt from their press release:

=========================

Earworms from Everywhere - A celebration of music from the screen, the stage and The Beatles

The International Festival Chorus (Singapore) invites music lovers, theatre fans and film buffs to this family-friendly Labour Day concert, Earworms from Everywhere — the annual Spring concert of the International Festival Chorus (Singapore).

The term ‘earworm’ comes from the German ‘ohrwurm‘ — a catchy tune that sticks in your head. Earworms from Everywhere presents classic melodies that wedge themselves in our brains and refuse to let go, from the nostalgia of The Beatles to entertaining numbers from the screen and the stage.

Audiences can expect a range of pieces performed by full chorus, entertaining duets and trios, and inspired solo performances — from Broadway hits such as Rent, Avenue Q, Cabaret, Miss Saigon and The Phantom of the Opera, and music from blockbuster films such as Sister Act 2 and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. A selection of poetry readings from Shakespeare to more modern, humourous poems will be interspersed through the concert. Pieces are performed a cappella and with musical accompaniment by the Chorus’s Resident Pianist as well as brass music from guest artists, B5 Brass.
