Preview: A Getai Date with Mum 《歌台妈妈 善友之约》by Ding Yi Music Company
If you’re scratching your head as to what gift to get for mum this Mother’s Day, then consider bringing her out on a date with Ding Yi Music Company’s A Getai Date With Mum.
After their Lunar New Year celebration in February, Ding Yi will be returning with a concert featuring a stellar lineup of some of the best local Getai singers in the business, and held at the grand Esplanade Concert Hall. Directed by actress and Getai ‘Ah Jie’ Liu Ling Ling, who will also be a featured artiste, not only will audiences get to witness a smashing series of Getai classics, they’ll also be educated on the evolution of the entertainment form through history as it changes to suits the modern art scene today. Ding Yi themselves will be infusing these familiar Getai numbers with elements of Chinese orchestra, as conducted by the acclaimed Quek Ling Kiong.
Besides Liu Ling Ling, who as a mother herself, will be performing a never-seen-before segment arranged to showcase her love for her child, audiences can also expect to see and hear the voices of Getai “Ah Ge” Wang Lei, visually stunning Sam Loo and 90s Cantopop Queen Angie Lau. Be sure to book your tickets to give your mum a real treat, as you join these Getai veterans for a splendid night of love, celebration and gratitude for the most important woman in our lives.
A Getai Music Date with Mum plays at the Esplanade Concert Hall on 6th May. Tickets available from SISTIC
