Singapore Chinese Orchestra

e had a lovely weekend which of course started on Friday evening when we went to see the Singapore Chinese Orchestra.

The concert was titled JAZZ YOU UP

We saw Jazz musician Chris Brubeck and his group Triple Play fellows, Peter Madcat Ruth and Joel Brown, perform alongside the Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO) in an evening of distinct musical styles. Thrill to the sensation of this East-meets-West encounter as Chris and his Triple Play jazz to the newly-arranged trio of Bach Prelude in D Minor, Rhapsody of the Grassland and Summer Palace.

At the end, Take Five was brought back upon popular demand.
No surprise there!!

The SCO is a distinctive Chinese orchestra that is fast establishing itself among similar counterparts in the world, the Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO) is the only professional Chinese orchestra in Singapore.

Inaugurated in 1997, the 75-strong orchestra has the patronage of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and finds its performing home at the Singapore Conference Hall.

........... and Tsung Yeh is my all time favorite Musical Director!!

What an amazing gentleman.

Just love him.

if anyone wants to attend any of the concerts or wants to know a little more about the SCO, this is their website:
