Performing Arts-Based Learning

In Partnership with the National Arts Council and Ministry of Education

Take learning out of the classroom!

Join us for Performing Arts-Based Learning (PABL), a core cohort learning experience that takes learning out of the classroom and into the concert hall.

In partnership with the National Arts Council (NAC) and Ministry of Education (MOE), the programme aligns with the 2023 Lower Secondary Music Syllabus Outcomes and will feature an engaging programme performed by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, showcasing music from local and international composers.

This programme is commissioned by the NAC and MOE and is exclusively offered to schools.

Led by conductor Jason Lai, the programme will showcase the creative explorations of programmatic music and its ability to transport audiences to another world through musicality and instrumentation. Demonstrated by performances of Falla’s Ritual Fire Dance, Smetana’s Má Vlast, Chen Zhangyi’s ‘II. Rain’ from Rain Tree, and selections from Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, students will be taken on an informative journey to explore how composers far and near make connections between music and their environment (specifically on the themes of water and fire), and consider how music can be used as a canvas for self-expression through sound.

The objectives of the Performing Arts-Based Learning (PABL) are to:

  • deepen our students’ appreciation for live music performances;
  • cultivate a sense of curiosity and pride in our students towards local music, musicians and performance venues; and
  • strengthen students’ ability to make connections between classroom music learning and authentic music experiences beyond the school.

Photographs and videos will be taken at the event in which you may appear. Such photographs and videos may be displayed or published on SSO’s website, social media platforms, publications and publicity materials. By attending the event, you consent to the use of these photographs and videos for the foregoing purposes.
