[Towards The Future] with the Singapore Chinese Orchestra!

Throughout my short years of singing experience as a solo singer, 
i've had the honour of playing with several orchestras, 
including the philharmonic winds & Singapore Youth Chinese Orchestra. 

It thrills me to no end being able to sing with something so majestic 
and indeed MICappella was very fortunate and honoured to be invited by the 
Singapore Chinese Orchestra for not one, but two performance collaborations!!!

All hail SG50 and Jubilee Year!! 
The conceptualization of our musical item with the SCO went back to months ago! 

Music-making, it's a serious business! 
We had several conference meetings to nail down the arrangements with Maestro Tsung Yeh. 

Aptly termed, the "MICaMedley"
which comprises of 4 popular Singaporean tune - 
Cheng Li De Yue Guang,
Xi Shui Chang Liu, 
Chi de Qi Ku
& Here We Go, MICappella Original Song. 

We had several private score-reading sessions with the Maestro himself
 before our rehearsal with the entire Orchestra. 

Rehearsal day @ Singapore Conference Hall!

Transformation before the big item! 

I kinda spotted former Prime Minister Mr Goh Chok Tong in the audience, 
and i panicked a little. Lol.

The concert featured a few other amazing artistes, 
including Lim Kah Tong who did a narration of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew against the orchestration,
Singaporean Pianist Serene Koh, 
and Veteran Singer Robert Fernando!
