Steinway Gallery Singapore proudly invites you to be part of Singapore’s music history with the debut of its new community outreach initiative, Piano Marathon @ ION Orchard 2017.
Piano Marathon @ ION Orchard 2017 is a new initiative co-organised by Steinway Gallery Singapore and The RICE Company Ltd, and managed by Global Cultural Alliance Ltd. Through the 12-hour piano marathon, the organisers will bring together both amateur and professional musicians, with the aim of generating even greater interest and love for music among our community.
Playing To Make A Difference
The universal appreciation for music and piano playing is inherent among Singaporeans, with piano lessons and music becoming more accessible to many from young. Nevertheless, there are still many from the community for who music education or even to touch the piano remains a dream.
Playing To Be A First
The event aims to achieve the longest piano performance in Singapore for the Singapore Book Of Records.

About BT BAF
The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF), which was launched in 2004 and adopted by The Business Times in 2005, originated from a conviction that no child with a strong interest and potential in the arts should be denied the opportunity to develop his or her talents due to a lack of financial resources. The fund provides young people from ages 6 to 19 from financially disadvantaged families an opportunity to pursue arts training and nurture their artistic talents. Through the support of BTBAF, regular weekend arts programme are held at the four arts training centre – The Little Arts Academy at POMO, 10 Square at Orchard Central, The Little Arts Academy North Campus I & II. BTBAF is managed by The RICE Company Ltd, a registered charity with an IPC status.
This initiative seeks to celebrate Singaporeans’ love of making music through an occasion that allows them to come together at one of the nation’s most popular urban retail mall, ION Orchard while raising funds for the less fortunate at the same time.
Through this initiative, we hope to raise SGD$30,000 – this will allow BT BAF to continue providing arts training programmes, arts camps, workshops and performance platforms which the fund has given to more than 15,000 needy children and youth since 2005. Through nurturing the artistic talents of these children and youth, BT BAF also seeks to build their values, character and self-esteem.
