Join conductor and host Jessica Gethin on a Journey Around the World in the next edition of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra’s (SSO) Concerts for Children series. Over four performances on 21st and 22nd March, Jessica and the SSO will explore soundscapes of music from across the globe.
This interactive show will include some of the most popular classical music ever written, including Copland’s Appalachian Spring Suite, Debussy’s Clair de Lune as well as Kelly Tang’s celebration of Singapore’s musical history, Symphonic Suite on a Set of Local Tunes. But there’s a twist: the order of the programme will only be decided during the concert itself – and it will be down to the audience to decide!
