Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO) has announced their first live concert since restrictions on live performances eased.
Taking place on 22 November at 5 pm, the concert will be held at the Festive Arts Theatre, Our Tampines Hub (OTH). The programme will feature four stellar musicians from SSO performing classical favourites by Mozart, Beethoven and Dvořák, as well as a work by established Singaporean composer, Phoon Yew Tien. Special Guest of the evening, Mr Edwin Tong, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, will also be making an appearance at the event.
To ensure that patrons get to enjoy the music performances with a piece of mind, a suite of safe management measures will be implemented at the venue, including temperature screening, enhanced cleaning, separate entrances and staggered entries to avoid congestion, use of TraceTogether app or token, and safe social distancing between attendees.
In an effort to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic, the SSO has also digitally transformed themselves within the past few months by rolling out a series of online programmes titled SSOPlayOn which was led by their Chief Conductor, Hans Graf, and will feature young star violinist, Chloe Chua, accompanied by Principal cellist, Ng Pei-Sian.
For those interested in the live community concert, tickets are available for free on a first-come, first-served basis, and they can register for the event by going down to the Public Service Centre at Our Tampines Hub and collect a maximum of two tickets.
Registrations open 13 November, Friday. For more information, visit the OTH Facebook page.
