We hosted two "K"-pable guest artistes last Saturday, the Principal/Solo Flute of the prestigious Vienna Philharmonic, Karl-Heinz Schütz, as well as Singapore's very own fast-rising international conductor Kahchun Wong.

Audiences were enthralled and moved by their superlative accounts of the rarely heard Reinecke Flute Concerto and the SSO favourite, Rachmaninoff's Second Symphony.

Lights dimmed halfway through the show, as the singer reappeared on the extended platform where a piano and a giant rose prop awaited his presence.

Taking the stage, he proceeded to serenade fans with a medley of sentimental tunes such as ‘Because I Had You’, ‘A Little Too Much and ‘When You’re Ready’.

As much as we adore Shawn Mendes on record, there’s just something about his stripped-down vocals that draws you into his charms.
