No one is sure of the exact birth date of Ludwig van Beethoven, who was born in Bonn, Germany in December 1770.

He was baptised on 17 December, so he was probably born the day before. His birthplace (pictured) is now the Beethoven-Haus museum.

16th December is commonly accepted as Beethoven's birthday since his family and even his teacher Johann Albrechtsberger celebrated it on that day.

Happy birthday to our founding Music Director and Conductor Emeritus Choo Hoey!

Maestro Choo turns an auspicious 88 today. An alumnus of Chinese High, Choo learnt the violin with music pioneer Goh Soon Tioe, studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London, and learnt conducting from Igor Markevitch.

He was Principal Conductor of the Greek National Opera before being invited back to lead Singapore’s first professional western classical orchestra. In his 17-year tenure, he brought the orchestra on nine international tours – across Asia and Europe.

Choo was awarded the Cultural Medallion in 1979, the highest award recognising artistic talent in Singapore. Concertgoers in Singapore last saw the maestro in a 40th anniversary concert this year (Apr 18).

Best wishes from all of us here at the SSO, Maestro!
