MAKING MUSIC SINCE 1979
40 years ago, the meditative mysteries of Ives’ The Unanswered Question and the majestic strides of Beethoven’s Emperor Piano Concerto resounded at our inaugural concert in January 1979. We also pay tribute to Leong Yoon Pin (1932 - 2011), the most important of Singapore’s pioneering composers, whose Dayong Sampan Overture was the first Singaporean composition ever played by the SSO. Join us as we celebrate the SSO's 40th birthday!
