Voice Print to say thank you with an evening of song

Voice Print, the all-male acapella choir will team with some of the country’s best vocal talent to present ‘Encore’ at the Water’s Edge next Sunday, October 10. Joining them on stage will be the Lanerolle Brothers, Natasha Rathnayake, Ricky Bahar, Mariazelle, Soul Sounds, Rukshan Mark, Krishan and the Choir of the Visual Arts Faculty.

It’s a show to say ‘thank you’ to all who’ve been with Voice Print since our inception in 2006 and supported us on our journey,” says the choir’s Musical Director Michael Sathasivam. The ten-member choir, fresh from their success at the World Choir Games (WCG) 2010 in the Chinese city of Shaoxing, where they picked up a silver medal in the Pop category and a bronze in the Gospel category will showcase their Games repertoire so that the local audience can have the pleasure of seeing them perform the songs that helped them hit the headlines there.

These include such popular favourites as “Why do fools fall in love’, I want you back’, ‘Don’t Stop’, a Gregorian chant version of ‘Nearer my God to Thee’ and the local hit ‘Ranmali’. Voice Print will be backed by The Rebels, like them, incidentally also comprised Old Benedictine talent.

The wide and varied programme incorporates fusion with western music, with percussion drums, cellos et al. “There will be virtually a "Who's Who " of the Sri Lankan Choir/Western music scene on the same stage,” says Michael adding that Ricky Bahar will lead the entire group in a medley of Elvis hits and the grand finale will see them all singing, ‘I still haven’t found what I’m looking for’.

“Many of these guys supported us when we were starting out and virtually unknown, says Michael mentioning the De Lanerolle Brothers, Rukshan, Mariazelle and others to whom they owe a debt of gratitude. Then there are the sponsors, he adds, SriLankan Airlines, Caravan and others who helped them make the costly trip to China – a leap of faith which turned out to be well justified.
