The Metropolitan Festival Orchestra (MFO) is Singapore’s only fully-independent professional symphony orchestra. With its roots in the acclaimed Singapore Festival Orchestra (SFO), resident orchestra of the Singapore Arts Festival from 2007 to 2012, the MFO was founded in 2013 as the spiritual successor of the SFO.
The MFO is inspired by its philosophy that the orchestra is a powerful tool for bringing people together through the experience of music, and is constantly breaking new grounds through its forward-looking programmes. Bringing together some of the best professionally-trained musicians in Singapore and the region, the MFO is known for its spirited camaraderie, technical brilliance and musical versatility.
Mobilising its musicians in innovative and sustainable ways that unlock their ability to play a powerful role in society, the MFO envisions a society where everyone is empowered through the experience of music to live, work and grow better, no matter who they are and what they do.
Notable international collaborations include performances with Hans Zimmer, Tan Dun, Lang Lang, Kitaro, Paul Anka, Liu Jia Chang, Il Divo, Stefanie Sun, JJ Lin, Singapore International Festival of Arts, Korea National Opera and Gamelan Garasi Seni Benawa.
The MFO was also the pioneer in bringing the immersive blockbuster film-concert format to Asian audiences, presenting the Asian and Southeast Asian premieres of the Lord of the Rings, and subsequently performing numerous film-concerts from the Harry Potter, Star Wars and Frozen franchises. Other global cultural franchise concerts that the MFO has performed include Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts and Disney on Classic.
As strategic partner of the Singapore Ballet (SB), the MFO accompanies SB in the iconic full-length classical dance productions of SB’s annual seasons.
Besides its concert performances, the MFO is also a regional leader in applying the dynamics of the orchestra as a high performance organisation to senior executive leadership training, through its partnerships with INSEAD - The Business School for the World (Asia Campus), the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and Deloitte University Asia Pacific.
