It’s percussion galore at the Young Children’s Concert! Singapore Chinese Orchestra’s latest concert is set to inspire kids to get jamming on Chinese instruments

Singapore Chinese Orchestra’s Young Children’s Concert returns on 25 – 26 May! DiSCOvering Treasures of Chinese Music – Carnival of Percussion! will take kiddos through familiar Singapore tunes using a variety of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Western percussion instruments, like the Drums, Gongs, Woodblocks, Xylophone, Marimba, Glockenspiel, and more.

Inspired by SCO’s audio book Adventures of Quek Quek – which includes four books and a CD introducing the sections of a Chinese Orchestra – the percussion-themed concert aims to inspire little ones to pick up a Chinese instrument after experiencing the show.

Get ready for an instrumental storm with SCO conductor, Mr Quek and a number of young performers! There will be pieces by young local composers such as Musical Adventure by Tan Kah Yong and Kaleidoscope World of Percussion by Wang Chenwei. Learn how simple everyday things can make music – like a walnut tumbling rhythmically (as portrayed in New Rolling Walnuts rearranged by Quek Ling Kiong) or melodic, bickering ducks (in Squabbling Duck). Find out why we clap our hands whenever we hear Radetzky March and also lend your ears to performances of Czardas (rearranged by SCO’s very own erhu musician, Liu Zhi Yue), Matsuri and more!

It's World Down Syndrome Day today. Let's raise awareness and together acceptance.⁣
We are aware that people with Down Syndrome are the same, deserving of equal rights, equal opportunities and privileges. ⁣
We are aware of what the features associated with Down Syndrome look like, aware of the discrimination and prejudice that people with Down Syndrome sometimes suffer. ⁣
We are aware that the world is not often kind to people with Down Syndrome.⁣
⁣
This year, the global theme is “Leave no one behind”.⁣
We count down the best outdoor playgrounds in Singapore (all free!) and share their top features, from slides to swings to zip lines. Wondering which playgrounds are worth the trip, mama?
