It's January 10th and as promised, #midweekthoughts resume!
We've been having really great rehearsals with the Orchestra of the Music Makers (OMM) and I'm really looking forward to performing with my musical brothers from the Lorong Boys as well as the talented musicians that form the orchestra!
Jon painstakingly wrote the entire piece of work for all of us and it truly is remarkable, with local 'flavours' in them as well.
If you were at our open rehearsal on Sunday, you would have already noticed that while the music is new and unknown, it is also familiar and comforting. I personally think Jon did a marvellous job at writing and at portraying what the Boys can do, as well as what it means to be a Singaporean composer and musician.
I am so excited to be in this project and to be playing Jon's piece! It's also a milestone for me as Siginnah! will be my first time ever to perform a concerto! It's been an incredible experience so far, learning and making music.
If you're still undecided, do yourself a favour and book your tickets here! The OMM has always gotten rave reviews and you will not be disappointed! Hope to catch you this Saturday and in the meantime, stay safe and be well. Thanks for reading as always!
