New Sights Concert
Date: 25th August 2023
Time: 1900hrs - 2100hrs
Venue: Yong Siew Toh Orchestral Hall
 
Join us for "New Sights," an intercultural concert premiering 6 new works by exceptional composers from the New Sights Fellowship Programme.
 
With a focus on intercultural music, New Sights offers an opportunity to embark on a harmonious fusion and cultural voyage. Over the course of the programme, the fellows visited several cultural sites hosted by our Teaching Artists and exchanged conversations with cultural arts groups and artists.
 
Each composer fellow brings a unique perspective, drawing inspiration from diverse cultural backgrounds and weaving together threads of melodies, rhythms, and harmonies from our beloved Singapore.
 
We believe that art has the power to bridge cultural divides and foster understanding among people from different backgrounds. This concert embodies that spirit, creating a space where diverse cultures converge, intertwine, and inspire one another. You will witness the transformative power of intercultural collaboration. Musical boundaries dissolve, making room for new and exciting possibilities. The stage comes alive with The Straits Ensemble, crafting a vibrant tapestry of sound that resonates with the shared human experience.

Crossing Borders 2022 Love. Land. Life.
Jun 2022, Sun, 7.45pm & 9pmDBS Foundation Outdoor Theatre at Esplanade 

Was there a song your mother would sing? A place etched in your memory? Or perhaps a rite of passage you are encountering or leaving behind? These are our shared experiences. Moments in time that we all encounter in some form or other. Same same, and not all that different. Love. Land. Life. is a musical performance that illuminates our shared experiences, through a musical exchange by members of the Straits Ensemble (comprising oud, pipa, violin, piano, and double bass), led by composer, bassist, and father-of-two Felix Phang.
