Duration: approximately 1 hr

The Singaporean landscape is a rich mix of old and new, and of East and West. The pipe organ is a distinct feature of Western culture. In Singapore, there are only a handful of working pipe organs to date, some decades old, and others barely more than a few years old.  Find out more on where they are located and how do they feature in modern, multi-cultural Singapore.

This programme is a collaboration between the National Library Board and the VCHpresents Series, in conjunction with the Light to Night Festival 2022
