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!
