The Esplanade Celebrates Mother’s Day with Concert for 1,600 Beneficiaries
Last Sunday, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay celebrated Mother’s Day with a special by-invitation-only concert for 1,600 beneficiaries from 40 Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs). Supported by the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation for the second year, the one-hour concert was held at the Esplanade Concert Hall and featured some of the biggest hits from yesteryear, performed by popular singers such as veteran getai singer Josephine Lam, Mediacorp’s Golden Age Talentime winner Lawrence Chen and Mediacorp’s Getai Challenge alumni Xie Wen, Li Bao En and the Baobei Sisters.
The VWOs in attendance included Fei Yue Seniors Activity Centre, Lions Befrienders and Presbyterian Community Services. The concert was presented as part of Esplanade’s Beautiful Sunday series, presenting free concerts by local music groups in the Esplanade Concert Hall for one Sunday each month.
As the concert concluded, the Esplanade Concert Hall was all smiles and applause with the 1,600 strong audience of beneficiaries, visibly enjoying the programme put up for them, a perfect start to a happy, beautiful Mother’s Day Sunday.
