Intended to provide a seamless experience for viewers, SSO will be compiling all the free and paid digital concerts on its YouTube channel, @singaporesymphony. With over 35,000 subscribers on its channel, this move is aligned with the company’s aim to reach international waters and reach out to the 2.6 billion monthly users on YouTube globally.
Viewers can now watch the SSO’s paid online concerts at just SGD 2 a month on YouTube. Under the launch of SSO’s YouTube Membership, viewers with a paid subscription can also enjoy additional premium content. The orchestra’s paid concerts were previously hosted by SISTIC Live (SSOLOUNGE).
The homegrown flagship orchestra will be planting exclusive musical pieces in celebration of the new membership structure this October.
On 7 and 9 October, SSO will be premiering Bruch’s Violin Concerto No.1, which includes 16-year-old violinist Chloe Chua and Dutch-Maltese conductor Lawrence Renes, and Mahler’s Symphony No.5, respectively. These musical acts were performed on 2 and 3 March 2023 at Esplanade Concert Hall.
