Ally, Dinah, Lauren and Normani are set to take the stage at the Microsoft Theater, kicking off what is sure to be another exciting year for the girls, who are also nominated for "Favorite Group" at the awards show. The group will also return to the studio this year to begin recording new music, committed to their loyal Harmonizers and ready to take 2017 head-on with their best music yet. Fans can expect to hear new material in 2017 via Syco Music/Epic Records, the label that has been with the group since their incarnation on The X Factor U.S.A.

Work from Home, the album's 3x-platinum certified first single, earned Fifth Harmony their first top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, notching the top spot on both the Billboard Rhythmic and Pop Songs charts.

Mozart Meets Corigliano – an evenin...
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the 18th-century Viennese composer who needs no introduction; and nearly two hundred years later, John Corigliano, the American composer best known for his Academy Award-winning film score to “The Red Violin” – what do Mozart and Corigliano have in common and why would we put them both in the same concert? The young Mozart’s musical talent was discovered by his musician father Leopold and he quickly became known as a prodigy, composing and performing from the age of five. John Corigliano Sr. was concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra for 23 years and was a major influence on the younger Corigliano’s taste in music. Corigliano Jr. proclaimed that the violin was his “first love” and has since composed some great violin music for his father to perform. The charming Violin Sonata, like “The Red Violin” Concerto, is dedicated to John Corigliano Sr. Winner of the Festival of Two Worlds prize for chamber music in Spoleto, Italy in 1964, it is quickly becoming part of the standard violin repertoire. The recital will also feature two of Mozart’s most popular violin sonatas in B flat major (K378 and K454). Following their successful debut in 2015 with the complete Brahms Violin Sonatas, violinist Lee Shi Mei and pianist Lim Yan return to the Esplanade Recital Studio with an evening of exquisite violin and piano music. Why not bring dad along to show your appreciation for him and enjoy a wonderful evening together!

TEMPER TRAP - LIVE IN SINGAPORE
Live Nation Lushington is proud to announce award-winning Australian indie rock band THE TEMPER TRAP, performing live in Singapore on 10 March 2017 (Friday) at The Coliseum™, Hard Rock Hotel Singapore, Resorts World Sentosa. The indie-rock veterans have performed in Singapore a few times since making their debut at the St Jerome's Laneway Festival here in 2011. They were previously in town last May to promote their latest studio album Thick As Thieves. The Temper Trap first rose to local acclaim in Melbourne, Australia in 2006 with the release of their debut EP. Their 2009 debut album Conditions, propelled by the hit anthem 'Sweet Disposition', was a huge success and sold nearly a million copies worldwide. Two years later, the band delivered the self-titled album, which featured the singles 'Trembling Hands' and 'Need Your Love' and was certified platinum. More than a million albums sold; more than 150 million streams on Spotify; arena support tours with Coldplay and the Rolling Stones; gracing the stages of Glastonbury, Lollapalooza and Coachella; being nominated and winning a number of prestigious ARIA Awards in Australia, as well as receiving a nomination for best international group at the BRIT Awards. It has been a good few years for The Temper Trap. Despite the departure of guitarist Lorenzo Sillitto in 2013, Dougy Mandagi (vocals, guitar), Toby Dundas (drums, vocals), Jonathon Aherne (bass, vocals) and Joseph Greer (keyboards, guitar, vocals) started forging ahead with the third album, and turned a negative into a positive. "We went into it then as a four piece," says Mandagi. "And it pushed us towards certain place that we may have not gone had we still been five. It forced us to make everything leaner." The Temper Trap in 2016 is a consolidation of what made the band matter to people in the first place. The title Thick As Thieves seemed a natural choice. Anthemic, direct, up, emotive music, typified by the first three songs that came: 'So Much Sky', 'Summer's Almost Gone' and 'Burn'. "Those were ones that were very much built around guitars," says Dundas. "And that was something that we wanted to do: for it to very much be a guitar record. It doesn't mean it can't have other stuff - the first record had lots of other stuff bubbling away underneath - but at the heart of it, if you strip everything away, that's the vibe."

《木兰先生》 青少年戏剧 Mr Magnolia - A Story ...
War is raging. The military has come to the villages to round up men to fight in the battle. Magnolia, the daughter of an aged herb gatherer, bravely offers to take her father's place by disguising herself as a man. In a dangerous time and in a place where no woman is allowed, how will Magnolia survive? Mr. Magnolia retells the classic story of Mulan, a brave woman who disguises as a man to take over her father's role in the military. In this unique rendition, Mr. Magnolia and her home folks are not fighting a usual war against foreign invaders--but against an ambitious emperor's deceptive quest for greatness. Adapted from a true historical event in China's Northern Wei period (386-581 A.D.), Mr. Magnolia combines political intrigue, history, poetry, and a cast of talented children. Children and grown-ups are all welcome! An initial draft of this script was created through an improvisation workshop directed by Chia-Yu Tang in Suzhou, China, with students from Wujiang Taihu International School. The workshop was consulted by Beta Taurus (USA) and supported by Taihu Great Learning Center (China). The draft reading was presented on August 22, 2016 in Wujiang, China with the following team: Playwright Chia-Yu Tang Douglas Kerr Feihu Qi Music Shih-Kuei Yuan Director Chia-Yu Tang Assist Director Xiao Jun Kow Set Jerry Huang Sound Dalong Jiao Stage Manager Jimmy Zhi Assistant SM Tommy Bian Cast Justin Wang Vivian Gan William Liu Frank Ji Gilbert Li Hannah He Danna Li Jack Zhu Jack Li Robin Liao Lloyd Zhao Crystal Ji Angel Li Coco Ni Penny Cao
National Museum of Singapore Cinema...
Cinémathèque Selects is a monthly double-bill screening that profiles the boldest filmmakers and most inventive productions from Singapore’s past to its present. Focusing on diverse aspects of film-making, from directing to producing, script writing to cinematography and art direction, the series uncovers lesser-known local productions and features significant films in Singapore’s cinematic landscape. Each film screening is accompanied by a conversation with the filmmaker and a second film guest that has influenced the filmmaker on a personal and professional level. Eating AirDirected by Jasmine Ng Kin Kia and Kelvin Tong1999 / 100 min / ratings TBA Eating Air came onto the scene just as Singapore’s nascent revival in filmmaking in the 1990s began to flourish. A year before the film’s release in 1999, the Singapore cinema scene was boosted by the appearance of Glen Goei’s Forever Fever, Tay Teck Lock’s Money No Enough and Philip Lim’s The Teenage Textbook Movie. Jasmine Ng and Kelvin Tong’s gangland kungfu romance fantasy is the daydreaming delinquent offspring of those earlier films. A vibrant cocktail of the old-school boy-meets-girl narrative, street gangster machismo and coming-of-age stories, the first-time feature is defined by realism and fantasy in equal measure.Benjamin Heng gives a spirited performance as Ah Boy, the leader of a motorcycle gang, whose carefree delinquent ways are challenged when the gang is embroiled in drugs and loan shark hustling. Adding to a volatile mix of street level violence and petty thefts is the appearance of Ah Girl, played by newcomer Alvina Toh, who is Ah Boy’s love interest and who compels him to make some life-changing decisions. The main cast was memorably supported by future director Michelle Chong and Channel 8 TV personality Mark Lee. Billy LiarDirected by John Schlesinger1963 / 93 min / ratings TBA A gem among the “kitchen-sink” dramas that constitute the British New Wave movement, Billy Liar, a film selected by the directors of Eating Air, inspired the production of the canonical 1990s Singapore film.In Billy Liar, Tom Courtenay gives a flawlessly nuanced performance as Billy Fisher, the underachieving undertaker’s assistant whose constant daydreams and truth-deficient stories earn him the nickname “Billy Liar”. Julie Christie, who plays his romantic interest, is the handbag-swinging charmer whose free spirit just might inspire Billy to finally move out of his parents’ house. Deftly veering from gritty realism to flamboyant fantasy, Billy Liar is a dazzling and hilarious classic.
