Singapore Chinese Orchestra
Inaugurated in 1997, the Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO), comprising of 82 musicians, is Singapore’s only professional Chinese orchestra as well as a flagship local arts group. Its patron is Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. SCO takes on the twin role of preserving traditional arts and culture, and establishing new frontiers through the incorporation of exotic Southeast Asian cultural artefacts and promoting Nanyang music. In June 2014, SCO created history through Our People Our Music 2014 by breaking two Guinness World Records with the Largest Chinese Orchestra and the Largest Chinese Drum Ensemble at the National Stadium.
