SSO CONCERTS FOR CHILDREN: JOURNEY AROUND THE WORLD
Join conductor and host Jessica Gethin on a Journey Around the World in our upcoming Concerts for Children series. Over four performances on Saturday and Sunday, 21 & 22 March, Jessica and the SSO will explore soundscapes of music from across the globe.
This interactive show will include some of the most popular classical music ever written, including Copland's Appalachian Spring Suite, Debussy's Clair de Lune as well as Kelly Tang's celebration of Singapore's musical history, Symphonic Suite on a Set of Local Tunes. But there's a twist: the order of the programme will only be decided during the concert itself - and it will be down to the audience to decide!
Australian born conductor Jessica Gethin has been hailed by audiences and critics for her stellar musicianship, vibrant energy and charismatic stage presence. Listed by Limelight Magazine in the ‘2017 Top Twenty Australian Artists of the Year’, Jessica's musical experience covers a wide range of genres, with an international schedule seeing her perform throughout the United States, Asia, New Zealand and Australia. She is fast being recognised for her repertoire diversity, conducting core symphonic works, opera, ballet and film scores.
