Singapore’s largest concert celebrating inclusivity, An ExtraOrdinary Celebration, will return on 15 November at the Ho Bee Auditorium in the University Cultural Centre, National University of Singapore (NUS).
Announced by ExtraOrdinary People Limited (EPL) today, the event is set to feature 11 performing groups, with 750 participants from special education schools and mainstream institutions, including APSN Katong School, MINDS Towner Gardens, Cerebral Palsy Association Singapore (CPAS), and more.
Taking on the theme of ‘A Kaleidoscope of Love and Hope’, this year’s event will bring together individuals from diverse backgrounds and abilities to ensure inclusivity. Just like a kaleidoscope, the concert will shine a light on the countless elements of love and hope.
The event will be graced by Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, President of the Republic of Singapore.
Shared in a press release, Mr. Ivan Chin, CEO of EPL said: “Our mission is to unite people from all walks of life, including beneficiaries, caregivers, and the broader public, in a community where ‘differences’ hold no bounds. Our annual concert stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to nurturing a world where diversity not only flourishes as a source of strength and harmony but also where we continue to emphasise inclusivity as an integral part of our society, rather than an afterthought.”
The recently established ExtraOrdinary Music Company will also make its concert debut and will perform alongside the ExtraOrdinary Light Orchestra.
