Grab your little adventurers, mama – it’s time to take a musical journey! Back by popular demand, the Singapore Chinese Orchestra is introducing the fifth in its well-loved “The Little Adventurer of SCO” Young Children’s Concert Series: “Fascinating Sound Waves”.
Led by the orchestra’s game conductor, Quek Ling Kiong (that’s Professor Quek to the kiddos in the audience!), children will explore how music connects to science, math, dynamics and even temperament.
As the orchestra performs all-time musical favourites like “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid and Bizet’s “Carmen Suite”, Professor Quek will introduce concepts like musical pitch and will illustrate how it can even transform into a wonderful melody. He’ll also use a Real Time Analyzer to demonstrate on the big screen how pitches vary – it just might be the kiddos’ first encounter with charts and graphs, and they’ll barely notice because they’ll be having so much fun!
Ideal for children 5 years old and up, the concert will be presented in English, with two performances on Saturday, 23 May. During the afternoon munchkins can also learn to make their very own Panpipe – the perfect instrument for demonstrating pitch sounds. All materials and instructions will be provided, and the pipes will even come in handy during the concert!
There will be two performances on the day, mamas, at 2:30pm and 5:00pm (the Friday performance is already sold out!). Book soon because tickets are selling fast!
The Little Adventurer of SCO – Fascinating Sound Waves is on 23 May 2015 (Sat), 2.30pm & 5pm at the SCO Concert Hall, 7 Shenton Way, Singapore 068810. Ticket Prices are $25 (excludes the SISTIC fee) with 10% off for 3 tickets and above. Purchase them online at SISTIC.
