But the Bukit Panjang Primary School pupil, who described the guitar performance at Victoria Concert Hall as a "memorable experience", did not have to pay a cent for it - thanks to a new programme by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO), which aims to make its shows more accessible. (Standard tickets at that particular show, the President's Young Performers concert, had ranged from $15 to $48.)

“Our founding fathers believed a symphony orchestra would enrich our culture and show the world that Singapore aimed to be a gracious society.

“Forty years on, the SSO is a fixture in our cultural firmament. When it performs to standing ovations and critical acclaim in major venues like the BBC Proms, the Berlin Philharmonie and the Prague Spring Festival, it is cause for pride and celebration. The SSO continues to bring joy to Singaporeans from all walks of life, making sure that its music is not just enjoyed by a select few.”
