The Music, Our Works – An evening of New Music

The Music, Our Works – An evening of New Music

Music is given to us with the sole purpose of establishing an order in things, including, and particularly, an order between man and time. 

– Igor Stravinsky

Five local composers unite to present an evening of their original compositions at The Arts House. This concert showcases their common past as music graduates from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, and at the same time, demonstrates how they have grown and developed musically and individually upon graduation.

I particularly remember last year’s concert because Bernard invited me to play oboe for his piece, Seeing through the Unbondable Links of Hours. It was a thoroughly stressful but fun experience, navigating through the score with no regular meter, having to listen for cues all around from the percussionist, violinist, pianist.

This year’s installment features an eclectic combination of solo and chamber works, promising something for everyone!

Come, spend an eye-opening evening with these up-and-coming young composers in the comfort of the Living Room at The Arts House, as they present their compositions and share their creative ideas with the audience in a post-concert dialogue session. Tickets are priced at $18, email to book your tickets.
