Singapore, 28 July 2021 — The Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO) is making amendments to the programme for the President's Young Performers Concert on 5 and 6 August 2021. In view of Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) restrictions, this concert’s programme has been amended to: ARENSKY Variations on a Theme by Tchaikovsky, Op. 35a; DEBUSSY Danses sacrée et profane for harp and strings (featuring soloist Charmaine Teo); and TCHAIKOVSKY Serenade for Strings, Op. 48.
Also, the SSO will like to notify that it is cancelling its ‘VCHpresents Organ: Pipe Up! Pedal to the Metal’ concert on Sunday, 1 August 2021. Originally scheduled to take place at Victoria Concert Hall at 2pm and 5pm, this news comes after one of the artists for the concert is indisposed, and is therefore unable to perform.
Ticketholders for both concerts will be contacted via SISTIC to inform them of these updates as well as to process their refunds.
