This November, Base Entertainment presents Grains of Glory – The Best of Musicals, a brand new concert experience bringing together live sand artistry, singing and live violin performance. The production unites international sand artist Lawrence Koh, Soprano Moira Loh and acclaimed violinist Seah Huan Yuh, as they come together to present songs from the world’s best musicals, including The Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon and Anastasia, bringing them alive through live sand drawings whilst listening to their musical rendition.
Utilising an awe-inspiring combination of sand, music and light, Lawrence Koh has created thousands of performances as a Sand Artist and Light Painter during his local and international performances. With over 15 years of performing experiences, Lawrence is honoured to be invited to perform extensively for multiple prestigious events such as award ceremonies, official launch, grand openings, dinner and dance events, festive celebrations, international summits, global conferences, anniversary celebrations, government events and many more. During his professional journey, Lawrence has performed with symphony orchestras, Chinese orchestras, fusion bands, storytellers, vocalists, dancers, traditional art forms, pipe organ players, DJ and even Shaolin martial artists.
Seah Huan Yuh graduated with a first-class Music degree from the University of Birmingham (UK). Having won various National Arts Council competitions since the age of 11, Huan has since performed in prestigious music festivals in London, Sydney, Tokyo and Kirishima, where he was awarded the Top 10 Most Outstanding Performer prize. He toured with the Asian Youth Orchestra to US and Hawaii in 1999 where he made his solo concerto debut in UK at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall (2003) playing Brahms Violin Concerto. Huan has made his solo concerto debut performing at Singapore’s premiere of John Adams Violin Concerto with Singapore Symphony Orchestra (2004), and has helped organise and record a couple of soundtracks for films and artists of various genres including ballet, theatre and drama productions. He is also the soloist/leader for numerous musicals at Esplanade, Marina Bay Sands and Capitol Theatre. Shows include The Phantom of the Opera (3 tours), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Sound of Music (2 tours), My Fair Lady, West Side Story and most recently Disney’s Aladdin the Musical.
