Experimental Cantonese Opera "Farew...
Presented and Produced by West Kowloon Cultural District Xiqu CentreAbout the plotIn the bleak cold of autumn in Gaixia, Xiang Yu, the self-proclaimed “Overlord of Western Chu”, realises he faces defeat.Echoing from all sides, the songs of Western Chu and the whinnying of war horses add to the heavy-hearted mood pointing to his downfall. Under the moonlight, Xiang Yu’s lover, Consort Yu, bids a heartbreaking farewell to her hero before committing suicide with his sword. By the banks of the Wu River, Xiang hears Yu’s voice encouraging him to bide his time and wait to regain power, and sees the spirits of soldiers slain in battle appear before him, urging him to fight till the end.Blending traditional Cantonese opera techniques with contemporary staging and lighting design, this groundbreaking production reinterprets the last moments of a hero caught between reality and illusion before his final battle and ultimate defeat at Gaixia.Creative ideasThis new adaptation of the classic play Farewell My Concubine, merges traditional Cantonese opera principles with innovative new techniques, offering audiences a performance that illustrates the transformation and development of Cantonese opera.The play opens with a prelude that features the entry of the heroic male lead Xiang Yu and a demonstration of traditional Cantonese opera performing skills. Throughout the production, songs are sung in Central Plains Mandarin and Cantonese, with tunes played by a traditional Cantonese opera luo gu (gongs and drums) ensemble. When Xiang takes a farewell drink with his concubine, the performers adopt contemporary bangzi and erhuang singing styles singing to xiaoqu (folk music) in traditional Central Plains Mandarin, and in the final scenes, the depiction of Xiang Yu’s psychological complexity is enhanced by the introduction of contemporary melodies.Respecting tradition and artistic innovation, our aim is to create vibrant productions that transcend traditional frameworks and explore new and original works, taking inspiration and elements from other performing art forms, and forging a new direction for Cantonese opera with an experimental and youthful approach.Artistic TeamProducer: Naomi Chung*Playwright/ Director/ Music Arranger: Keith Lai, Janet WongActors: Keith Lai, Janet Wong, Ng Lap HeiEnsemble Leader: Lee Tik LunPercussion Ensemble Leader: Dai RihuiTechnical Director: Rae Wu** WKCDA Staff

Vienna Boys Choir: Fly With Me
Imagine listening to one of the most beautiful and purest voices on earth: that of the Vienna Boys Choir. Join us as we welcome Austria’s youngest ambassadors of music in the beautiful and modern Esplanade Concert Hall.The Vienna Boys Choir has been singing at Vienna's Imperial Chapel since 1296. In 1498, Maximilian I (HRR) moved his court to Vienna, lock, stock, and choir, thus founding the “Hofmusikkapelle” (Chapel Imperial), and the Vienna Boys Choir. Over the centuries, the Viennese Court attracted great musicians like Isaac, de Monte, Fux, Caldara, Gluck, Salieri, Mozart, and Bruckner; Joseph Haydn, Michael Haydn, and Franz Schubert were themselves choir boys. Until 1918, the boys sang exclusively for the court. In the 1920s, the choir was reestablished as a private organisation. Since 1926, 2482 Vienna Boys Choir has sung 1000 tours in 97 different countries.Today, there are 100 choristers between the ages of nine and fourteen, divided into four touring choirs. Each choir spends nine to eleven weeks of the academic year on tour. Together, the choirs give around 300 concerts each year, attended by almost half a million spectators around the world. The choir regularly tours Europe, Asia and Australia, and the Americas.On Sundays, the boys perform with members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and of the Vienna State Opera Chorus in Vienna’s Imperial Chapel, as they have done since 1498.The choir’s repertoire includes everything from medieval to contemporary music. Motets and lieder form the core of the touring repertoire, as do the choir’s own arrangements of Viennese music. The choir also performs children’s operas and world music.The Vienna Boys Choir performs with major orchestras, such as the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the Staatskapelle Berlin, the Oslo Philharmonic, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Riccardo Muti (honorary member of the Chapel Imperial), Andrés Orozco Estrada, Christian Thielemann, Simone Young.You can find out more about SVBC week at www.svbc.sg regarding master classes and other activities.

Their performances of Reich’s music have been hailed by the composer as “the best I’ve ever heard” (Tehillim, Tokyo 2017).Led by Colin Currie (“the world’s finest and most daring percussionist” – Spectator), the handpicked group was formed in 2006 for a performance of Drumming at the BBC Proms to celebrate the 70th birthday of Steve Reich. Since then, they have expanded their repertoire to include many of Reich’s most popular works, including Music for 18 Musicians, Tehillim and Music for Pieces of Wood and are privileged to have the frequent presence of the composer when rehearsing and performing these works.The group’s highly anticipated recording of Drumming was released on Colin Currie Records in Spring 2018 after a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise funds, fully supported by Steve Reich who said “it will be, I am sure, the best recording of Drumming ever made”.The Colin Currie Group has appeared in concert at major halls and festivals worldwide, having made their international debut at Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall in 2012 and their European debut at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam. Recently, the group went on to give three performances of Reich’s music at the Louis Vuitton Foundation, Paris at the request of the composer himself. They will be joined by singers from Synergy Vocals, a vocal group specialising in close-microphone singing and often associated with the music of Steve Reich, John Adams, Louis Andriessen, Steven Mackey and Luciano Berio.ProgrammeReich: Music for Pieces of WoodReich: Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices and Organ (performed with Synergy Vocals)Reich: Drumming (performed with Synergy Vocals)
PESTA TIGA NEGARA 2018
Music; a language of the universe, and what better way to celebrate this form of expression than at a music festival. Pesta Tiga Negara 2018 – or its direct translation “Festival of 3 Countries 2018” – is a fun-filled music festival which gathers independent artistes from Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

OAG, or “Old Automated Garbage” as what it stands for, was one of the first English language Indie bands in Malaysia to gain huge attention from the mainstream music audience.OAG, celebrating their 26th anniversary this year is one of the biggest acts to rise out of the underground scene with Hujan going through a similar upsurge a decade later. Expectations are naturally high especially for Hujan, the nation’s breakthrough phenomenal Indie outfit whose album sales has exceeded an impressive number of 10,000 units.Indonesia has sent their equally talented artistes to represent the nation for this exemplary event – Jamaican-influenced “krontjong” crew Sir’iyai and Jakarta-based group D’Masiv. Sir’iyai is a Bandung-based ska/reggae pop group with traditional “keroncong” influences noticeably projected in their songs. As for the latter, D’Masiv - the band’s name is frequently associated with other top Indonesian Artistes such as Ungu, Nidji, Noah & Rossa, thanks to the popularity of their songs, they are nominated as best duo / group for “Anugerah Planet Musik 2018, Singapore”This 11-hour festival is set to be held at the West Coast Park Grand Lawn. One can expect to see people from all walks of life come together – regular concert & festival goers, travellers, hipsters, our local youth, International students and even domestic helpers.

RADIOHEAD A JAZZ SYMPHONY BY NOORDP...
Noordpool Orkest first Asian Tour presented by Axentika Events & Global Entertainment Production.Hailing from the obscure region of Drachten Northern Netherlands, Noordpool Orkest is an orchestral congregation of woodwinds and strings consisting of 42 professional musicians playing new light music. It was founded in 2010 by the Groningen composer Reinout Douma, who is also the band’s artistic director, general manager and pianist.Born in 1974, Reinout started playing the piano at 4 years old. He has played with many reputable and high-calibre musicians, such as Ed Kowalczyk, Waylon, Bert Visscher and Laura Jansen, to name a few. The maestro has also spread his wings far and wide across countries to share his love and creations for orchestral music. In 2009, Reinout started working on his dream of assembling a big professional jazz and pop orchestra. Hence, Noordpool Orkest was formed. They officially started in 2010 after two successful concerts.Noordpool Orkest’s experiences and skills in playing Jazz, Rock, Hip Hop, Funk, Drum & Bass, Chanson, Blues, Kleinkunst & Cabaret is a guaranteed proof of their versatility and flexibility.

They have gained a massive number of loyal fans from different parts of the world up till this day.In 2012, Noordpool Orkest released an entire tribute album named “Radiohead, A Jazz Symphony” under Challenge Records, which comprises of 10 cover songs. Reinout has made special arrangements for this debut release by improvising on the music, going beyond numerous dimensions of other and older jazz styles. Despite the absence of lyrics, the music was still commendable. The elements of melancholic chord progressions, unique rhythms and powerful ‘licks’ are valuable factors for a jazz musician. The album offers an atmospheric and almost lounge or film-like approach without compromising on the rock essences of the original music. It was eventually released in 34 countries.Taking after the orchestra’s debut album title, this concert is set to be held at the Esplanade Concert Hall. For Radiohead fans, be sure to keep an open mind as you may be surprised just how well jazz suits Radiohead’s elaborate time signatures and harmonies.

Kalaa Utsavam - Indian Festival of ...
“Few bands in the contemporary indie scene in the country have been able to sustain that momentum, transcending language barriers, on the back of just that one album as haveAvial.”-The HinduThere is nothing quite like the music Avial makes. Just a decade ago at a time when the indie rock scene in India was dominated by English-singing groups, the self-styled Kerala-based band made headlines with their genre-bending, moody brand of alternative Malayalam rock, written in their native tongue. Despite language differences in and outside of India, they continue to receive overwhelming responses, evident in the huge turnouts wherever they play.Not many in Indian alternative rock come close to replicating the band’s feat, or have found success producing music that permeates India’s multilingual society with such immediacy and emotional appeal. To their legions of fans all over India and the subcontinent, Avial will always be the band that “shuns all norms” (Rolling Stone India).Since 2003, Avial have been making music together, taking inspiration from a broad swathe of musical influences including electronic, folk and alternative rock, and infusing them with earthy Malayalam poetry on social and political issues. Their self-titled debut, which took four years to produce—and which swept up six awards at the Rolling Stone Jack Daniels Rock Awards in 2009—comprises eight tracks including their most popular singles Nada Nada and Chekele (a cover of a Malayalam folk song). The current line-up features vocalist Tony John, guitarist Rex Vijayan, drummer Mithun Puthenveetil and bassist Binny Isaac. Catch the legendary band as they make their debut in Singapore this November. This year also marks the 10th anniversary of their eponymous debut album.
