Singapore, 16 April 2015 (Thursday) –Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO)’s popular Young Children’s Concert: The Little Adventurer of SCO is here again! In the last four series, Resident Conductor Quek Ling Kiong (known as “Mr Quek” in his role) has brought the little adventurers to discover the four sections of the Chinese orchestra. In this concert, Mr Quek will bring the kids on a music journey to explore the connections between science and music, math and music, music dynamics and the temperament of music!

The story begins with Mr Quek’s last adventure under the sea where he was caught in the ocean currents and unfortunately went into a coma. Fortunately, he was saved by a little mermaid who prescribed him a magical music potion. After drinking the potion, Mr Quek was saved and transformed to a phenomenon music master! He is now a know-all Professor Quek!
