Leonard Bernstein's Mass Performed...
What is the role of faith in times of social and political disillusionment? When Jacqueline Kennedy approached composer Leonard Bernstein to compose a piece for the 1971 inauguration of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., the composer had a surprising inspiration amidst the political and social turmoil of the 1960s—the Roman Catholic Mass. At the heart of Mass: A Theatre Piece is the Celebrant, who, disillusioned by the doubts of his community, goes through a crisis of faith.Arguably Bernstein’s most ambitious work, Mass receives its long overdue Singapore premiere in the composer’s birth centennial. Joining the Orchestra of the Music Makers are two choirs, rock musicians, and a cast of Broadway-styled vocalists, epitomising the West Side Story composer’s deftness at fusing diverse styles. From solemn hymns and soothing meditations to edgy symphonic dances, and with an exciting infusion of Broadway, blues, rock, jazz and pop idioms, this eclectic musical-theatrical work is led by conductor Joshua Kangming Tan and directed by Edith Podesta, with production design by Brian Gothong Tan. Kevin Vortmann plays the Celebrant, following a sensational debut in the role with the Philadelphia Orchestra that was described by Opera News as “an exceptionally good choice for this central role…(with) immaculate dynamic control into the part’s many challenges."Joshua Kangming Tan, ConductorKevin Vortmann, CelebrantHimig Sanghaya, (Eudenice Palaruan, Vocal Coach)Symphonia Choralis, (Chong Wai Lun, Chorus Master)Volare Treble Voices, (Darius Lim, Chorus Master)Edith Podesta, DirectorBrian Gothong Tan, Multimedia DesignerIn collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay in conjunction with OMM’s 10th anniversary

Doa Buat Kekasih Concert
There are not many artistes able to bridge generations with their craft.Amongst this small but revered group of artistes, Ramli Sarip is the self-deprecating icon of several generations of music lovers. His fans span races and religions, from Malaysia to Brunei and Singapore to Indonesia.The boy from the kampong who claims humbly to “have very little talent” has grown to become the rocking Datuk. His gravelly voice is emotionally loaded whether he is singing about life lessons, divine providence or about aspects of love. The universality of his song has endeared him to various segments of society, to whom he is fondly known as Papa Rock.In nearly half-a-century in the music industry, Ramli has written and performed songs that explore life and living, evolving his craft along the way. From hard rock, his music may have mellowed as he finds himself walking in step with a greater cause. But while the melodies may be gentler, the messages, like his resolve, are still deeply meaningful.Since his time with Sweet Charity, the hard-rocking band he formed, playing in small gigs before hitting the larger circuits, and then rising to prominence as a solo artist, Ramli has constantly employed a work ethic that promoted the whole rather than the one.This is evident in his concerts, where he fills halls and allows a variety of musicians and styles to support his music, while allowing the individual to shine in their own right.His affable demeanour and willingness to chat over a teh tarik and a curry puff helps to cut across barriers.This approach is particularly helpful when it comes to collaborations with other artistes, which is also key to Ramli’s willingness to explore new facets of music. While many have enjoyed his duets with Ella, Datuk M. Nasir, and Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza, there is one song that has endeared and endured.Doa Buat Kekasih, performed originally with Khadijah Ibrahim in 1988 has been reinterpreted numerous times in the last 30 years. It’s a tribute to the song’s central theme — Pray For Love — that people are constantly looking to connect with each other, and love is a strong bond for humanity.The song about breaking up but retaining friendship is particularly poignant in this day and age of fleeting connections. It obviously resonates with audiences, and is a sing-along favourite at his concerts.Doa Buat Kekasih came to be during the ’80s era of power ballads, in particular the Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes hit Up Where We Belong.In the upcoming Doa Buat Kekasih 30th Anniversary Tour, the song takes on a new perspective. Proceeds form the concert are being donated to Ain Society, a charity that raises funds for cancer patients.While supporting a noble cause, Doa Buat Kekasih is also presenting the opportunity for fans to see the original stars come together after many years to show how friendships and love can transcend time and generations.
