Give little ones a love of music (and learning!) at Singapore Chinese Orchestra’s “Little Adventurer of SCO” concert with Professor Quek!
Grab your little ones, mamas – it’s time for a musical math class! Banish any thoughts of dry, dull and boring lectures – the Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO) is back with the newest instalment in its always-fun Young Children Concert, “The Little Adventurer of SCO: Mathematics Equation in Music”!
In its 20th Anniversary Concert season, Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO)’s resident conductor Quek Ling Kiong (lovingly known as Prof Quek to the young audience) plans to take children on a musical journey to explore the magical connection between music and math.
Professor Quek will introduce the concept of rhythm through the movement of animal friends like the Proud Little Monkey, Daydreaming Panda, Singing Parrot and Dancing Pug in the piece Animal Suites. He’ll also show kiddos how musical notations can be turned into various math formulas; children are sure to have so much fun bopping along to “The Medley of Musical Equations”, they’ll barely notice how much they’re learning!
The concert will be presented in English and is suitable for ages 5 and up. The Friday performance is already sold out, mama, so book your tickets fast for Saturday, 28 May. There will be two performances at 2:30 pm and 5:00 pm of approximately one hour each. Before the concert kiddos can learn to make their own Tambourine in a free Rhythm & Tambourine Making Workshop. It actually sounds like a lot of fun for mamas, too!
The Little Adventurer of SCO: Mathematics Equation in Music is happening on Saturday, 28 May, 2016, 2.30pm & 5pm at the SCO Concert Hall, 7 Shenton Way, Singapore Concert Hall Level 1, Singapore 068810.
