The concert, under the direction of resident conductor of Ding Yi Music Group, Wong De Li, Dedric, and guest conductor Chih Sheng Chen, aims to enhance cultural connections and “showcase the universal language of music that transcends geographical boundaries”.
Highlights of the show include various compositions such as Wang Jianmin's ‘Dream of Angels’ and Alice Ho’s ‘Four Dragons’, a vocal performance by Sound of Dragon’s Artistic Director Lan Tung, and a double concerto featuring Ding Yi’s dizi soloist Ng Hsien Han and flutist Paolo Bortolussi from Sound of Dragon Ensemble.
“Working with the Sound of Dragon Ensemble has always been a remarkable journey, a harmonious convergence of our musical worlds, and so we’re delighted to bring them to Singapore again. They bring a rich tapestry of cultural influences and artistic flair that will captivate Singaporean audiences,” said Wong De Li, Dedric, in a press release.
