FREE LUNCHTIME & COMMUNITY CONCERTS, ST CONCERT IN THE GARDENS

Published on 04 July 2019

Join us for four free concerts from 17 – 21 July! A fun and family-friendly one-hour programme awaits in each concert. Highlights include the famous Barber of Seville Overture, a musical portrait of Singapore by Kelly Tang, plus four lively pieces of musical candy by beloved light classical composers Leroy Anderson and Hans Christian Lumbye, including the cheerful Bugler’s Holiday and the chugging train of the Copenhagen Steam Railway Galop.

The concerts will be held at the Victoria Concert Hall (17 July), MPC @ Khatib (18 July) and Agape Concert Hall (PLMGS, 19 July), plus an open-air Straits Times Concert in the Gardens on Sunday, 21 July, at the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage, under the SPH Gift of Music Series. Hebrides, the Violin Concerto, the Scottish Symphony - three of Mendelssohn's finest classics, each embodying his Romantic spirit, inventiveness and vibrant capacity for melody. Spanish-Catalan conductor Josep Pons directs the SSO with our guest soloist, the young American violinist Stefan Jackiw, described by The Strad as "truly sensational, showing a talent and maturity that belie[s] his years".
