The choir comprised of only 23 young boys, but their voices were big and far-reaching. The location also helped to amplify the choir’s voices as the Esplanade’s concert hall has one of the best acoustics features, which include reverberation chambers (echo chambers), acoustic draperies and an acoustic canopy system.
