NEW NOTES IN THE PIPELINE

Schedule

Sun / 6 Aug 2017 / 4:00PM

Venue

Victoria Concert Hall

The King of Instruments takes centre stage with new compositions by Singaporean composers Chok Kerong and young contemporaries Chen Zhangyi and Phoon Yu. Disquiet, Chok’s work specially commissioned for the Klais Pipe Organ, will feature organist Margaret Chen with a string ensemble conducted by Ang Shao-wen. Composer-organist Phoon Yu will present an original piece that brings together the thrilling combination of organ and trumpet, before completing the afternoon with traditional flair, Bach's Prelude and Fugue in C major.
