YKLS.Period: Reworking the sounds of the past

The new year ushers in a time of rejoicing as we begin to chart another year with a clean slate. Resolutions are made to be made, and, yes, some to be broken. Here at PenTAS, we hope you are resolute to catch more performing arts works and to pledge your support (in any form, actually) to the proliferation of the arts. Because what kind of a life would you like to live if the is no place for the arts in it, right?

Well, to kick start you resolution (which we truly hope is to support the performing arts), why not be raptured by a captivating choral performance – YKLS.Period – by the Young KL Singers (YKLS) at penangpac. Taking us on a journey back in time, YKLS.Period revisits vocal music written during Europe’s most flourishing period from the Medieval and Renaissance to Baroque. The sounds of the past are reworked for the modern world, bringing us lute songs and rotas, court dances and madrigals.

An aural feast that looks magical. Good thing, we say!

The choir will take a retrospective tour of the different schools and styles of vocal music in England, France, Spain and Italy during that era – tying them together in a poetic story, told through song and dance, in period costume and sets. YKLS will explore the fusion of different elements in the performance practice of the music, experimenting with fusions of styles and improvisation, as was the common historical practice of music during that time.

YKLS.Period promises something for everyone and will be a unique experience for audiences here, as they will be treated to a stunning visual and aural feast. It will be a rare chance for audiences to hear and see music from one the most vibrant eras of European history, performed live here in Penang.
