Music Is: SSO Babies’ Proms by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra (Preview)
Join presenter William Ledbetter and conductor Tianyi Lu for the annual SSO Babies’ Proms. Over four performances on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th May (2pm & 4pm), William, Tianyi and the SSO will take the audience on a fun and fantastical journey of discovery for parents and children.
The hour-long concert is aimed at children aged 6 and below and will include classical works by Tchaikovsky, Grieg, Bizet and John Williams. Now in its 17th year, SSO Babies’ Proms is the perfect way to introduce young children to the instruments of the orchestra and the wonderful world of classical music.
William Ledbetter is a host, actor and facilitator, well-known in Singapore. He has hosted concerts for numerous musical organisations including the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and The Philharmonic Orchestra; he has hosted events for Singapore Press Holdings and STADA.
Tianyi Lu is making a name for herself across multiple continents: she holds the positions of Assistant Conductor of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Principal Conductor of the St Woolos Sinfonia in the UK and Female-Conductor-in-Residence with the Welsh National Opera in Cardiff. Lu was a Dudamel Fellow with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the 2017/18 season.
