Singapore’s favourite “Broadway Beng” sings with Singapore Chinese Orchestra in a night of pop concert!

Singapore, 20 March 2015 (Friday) – He is one of Singapore’s favourite Ah Bengs, with lots of crude Hokkien jokes and show tune-singing.

SCO Music Director Tsung Yeh conducts.

Sebastian Tan debuted with SCO in May 2012 in SCO’s annual Mother’s Day concert where he serenaded audience with three Hokkien songs. This April, Sebastian Tan will be featured as a superstar in the entire programme which he will sing popular Hokkien songs such as Prodigal’s Mood (浪子的心情), Drunken Aspirations(酒后的心声), No One Understands My Feelings (心事谁人知), Dad’s Words (阿爸的话), Wife (家后) and more!
