Preview: Sure on this Shining Night
The end of the year is always time to take a break from work, spend time with family and engage in some holiday cheer. But even then, the stress of Christmas shopping and crowds down Orchard Road can grate on your nerves. How then do you find relief amidst the madness of it all?
Here’s one way: get yourself down to Sure on this Shining Night for a relaxing hour of Christmas ditties from some of Singapore’s most promising young professional musicians. But make no mistake – these aren’t just your regular chart topping holiday numbers; the stellar team of Teng Xiang Ting (soprano), Leslie Tay (tenor), Alvin Tan (baritone) and Pauline Lee (piano) will be taking you straight to a winter wonderland in this recital featuring music from the 1700s all the way to modern Christmas carols!
Expect classical greats from the likes of Schubert’s “Ave Maria” and “Comfort Ye/Every Valley” by Handel, as well as soul stirring traditional songs like “O Holy Night” and even modern works such as legendary Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli’s “The Prayer”, and for a local touch, Lee Jin Jun & Aaron Lee’s newly composed “Christmas Shopping”, a satire on Singapore’s favourite pastime. Perfect for getting you right in the Christmas spirit a week before the holiday itself, there’s comfort and joy to be found in the Esplanade Recital Studio this December with Sure on this Shining Night.
Sure on this Shining Night plays at the Esplanade Recital Studio on 16th December 2017 (6pm and 8pm). Tickets available from Peatix.
