配合创团40周年,新加坡交响乐团(Singapore Symphony Orchestra) 于3月30日在新加坡丽思卡尔顿美年酒店举办筹款晚会。以“Rhapsody with the Symphony”为主题的这场晚宴共筹获160万新元。全部款项将用来赞助乐团演出、节庆活动、课程、音乐比赛以及新加坡交响合唱团和新加坡国家青年乐团的运作等等。新加坡交响乐团每年大约有100场演出,其中包括免费公开演出,希望让公众有更多机会接触古典音乐。
财政部长王瑞杰当晚以特别嘉宾身份莅临现场,新加坡交响乐团也在晚宴上献上精彩表演,包括与英国知名小提琴家Charlie Siem以及本地爵士歌手Alemay Fernandez的合作演出。
The Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO) celebrated its 40th anniversary on March 30 at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore with a benefit gala that raised $1.16 million. Mr Heng Swee Keat, Minister of Finance, graced the event as guest of honour. Guests were treated to outstanding performances by the SSO, which was joined by London-based violinist Charlie Siem and Singaporean jazz singer Alemay Fernandez.
Butterfield Singapore was the presenting sponsor this year, proceeds from the gala will go towards the support of the national orchestra which presents about 100 performances each year, benefiting the public and giving SSO the opportunity to bring classic music to all Singaporeans. The arts charity relies on private donations and government funding that also goes towards the running of the Singapore National Youth Orchestra and the Singapore Symphony Choruses, music competitions, workshops and festivals.
