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.

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!
