An evening with Singapore Chinese Orchestra

Dear members,

You are invited to join the SCO for two hours of fine musical entertainment.

You may pick one of the time slots below:

Date: Friday 16th September or Saturday 17th September 2011
Time: 8pm. The concert is expected to last for about 2 hours.
Place: SCO Concert Hall (Former Singapore Conference Hall), 7 Shenton Way

Acclaimed musicians SCO Leader Li Bao Shun and SCO’s Erhu Principal Zhao Jian Hua will perform two erhu masterpieces.

Fire Ritual by renowned composer Tan Dun combines traditional Chinese ritual music with palace music in a lyrical mourning of war and yearning for peace.

Night Thoughts by Liu Nian Qu was inspired by the famous story, “The Overlord Bidding Farewell to his Concubine”.

The orchestra will also present Suite for Chinese String Instruments, a composition that exhibits the mysterious momentum and charming tones of the huqin.
