A Gift for Singapore
12 Aug 2018
Esplanade Concert Hall

This National Day weekend, join the Asian Cultural Symphony Orchestra, led by conductors Adrian Chiang and Dedric Wong, for an afternoon of familiar medleys and local tunes by renowned Singaporean composers! Enjoy nostalgic songs of the various ethnic cultures in Singapore such as 细水长流 (Xi Shui Chang Liu) and Di Tanjong Katong. There will also be special appearances by vocalist 潘嗣敬 (Sugie Phua), world fusion music group Flame of the Forest, and other ethnic instrumental soloists!

The Asian Cultural Symphony Orchestra (ACSO) was founded in 2016 with the aim of championing Asian cultural symphonic music beyond melodic and instrumentational pastiche and celebrating them with equal regard as their Western counterparts. The ACSO also serves as a platform to showcase Singapore artists through their performances and compositions.
