Preview: Sing.Lang Concert (Sing.浪 2018) at Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre Cultural Extravaganza
The 2018 Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre Cultural Extravaganza wraps up this weekend after three weeks of festivities with a special two night concert featuring some of Singapore’s hottest stars singing the best of Singapore Chinese songs!
The finale concert will feature a host of local superstars, including Sing! China finalists Joanna Dong and Olinda Cho, Singapore’s first Mandopop export Maggie Teng, and even the unexpected Benjamin Kheng of local band The Sam Willows, better known for his performances in English, as they uncover the original roots of Singapore Chinese music. President Halimah Yacob will also grace the evening as Guest-of-Honour.
Says co-creative director Jimmy Ye: “We want this concert to show that there’s life after xinyao, and the title of the show in Chinese is inspired not only by how we have different waves of artists coming together, but also to highlight the fact that over the years, we’ve had so many artists and songs making waves overseas. All the songs that will be showcased during the concert are either composed by a Singaporean or made famous by one, and many of them should be recognizable by audience members.”
Sing.Lang Concert plays at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre Concourse, 1 Straits Boulevard, Singapore 018906 on 9th and 10th June. Admission is free. For the full lineup and schedule of the entire Extravaganza, visit the SCCC website here
