SSO Season Opening Online Concert
11 July @ 7:30 pm
The Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO) will open its 2020/21 season with an online concert on 11 July, the day which the orchestra originally planned to perform its first concert of the season at the Victoria Concert Hall.
The SSO’s Chairman Goh Yew Lin will welcome the online audience before Grace Fu, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, delivers her welcome remarks. The orchestra’s new Chief Conductor Hans Graf will then give his introductory remarks to kick off his first season.
The concert will open with a digital premiere of Hans Graf conducting the orchestra in Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony, filmed live at the Esplanade Concert Hall in January 2020. This will be followed by a special recording of the second movement from Bach’s Double Violin Concerto, with two star violinists: Karen Gomyo and Chloe Chua. Each member of the orchestra, as well as the soloists, recorded their parts at home due to COVID-19.
SSO will be streaming the event on the newly launched SISTIC Live platform. Registration is required and opens at 10am on 26 June.
