The concert comprised a variety of subgenres of music. Firstly, SUSS MIG Voices set the festive tone by performing beloved Christmas classics like “Deck the Halls” and “White Christmas”. With limited preparation time, this choral group seamlessly transitioned from their solo concert, Cantabile, which happened just two weeks earlier. Comprising 10 performers, the choir filled the room with harmonious melodies, engaging the audience in a sing-along session to festive favourites and setting a lively tone for the night.

SUSS MIG members who were not part of the performers also displayed their support by taking on diverse backend roles like managing the registration booth, ushering, and being part of the technical crew. From managing lighting to sound mixing, every facet of Coda 2023 was driven and managed by students.

I’m excited to see how MIG continues to take this annual concert and make it better for years to come.”

Muhammad Irsyad, SUSS MIG Chairperson and full-time Year 2 Accountancy student, also recounted, “The team had met with many trials and tribulations, and I am truly proud of our accomplishments this year. Coda 2023 was the perfect opportunity to send off the year and to give the audience a sneak peek of our fresh talents!"
