You may have thought: How does a Chinese Orchestral concert take place and how should I understand and appreciate Chinese Orchestral music? What is the role of the conductor? Do the musicians need to practice for more than ten hours each day? Can we request for the Chinese Orchestra to perform our favourite compositions? Let our Concert-in-Progress 2018 answer all your lingering questions! With SCO’s Resident Conductor Quek Ling Kiong, dizi musician Phang Thean Siong and erhu musician Zhang Bin, you will have better exposure to Chinese Orchestral music, and you can even pick your own choice pieces – songs with the top votes will be performed on the spot for all!
