Chinese music appreciation made fun for kids by the Singapore Chinese Orchestra via a Percussion Adventure!

Discovering Treasures of Chinese Music – Carnival of Percussion! will have your kids marching to the beat of their own drum this month

It’s time for your kids to start their summer holidays with a bang! The Singapore Chinese Orchestra’s (SCO) Young Children Orchestra is returning on 25 and 26 May with DiSCOvering Treasures of Chinese Music – Carnival of Percussion!…   and we heard it’s bigger and better. Ready? Here are the highlights.

A tune-rrific day with the Singapore Chinese Orchestra
Join SCO Conductor Quek Ling Kiong as he takes your little adventurers on a musical journey, using a wide range of Malay, Indian, and Western percussion instruments. Inspired by Singapore Chinese Orchestra’s audiobook (you can get your own copy at the concert, if you’d like), ‘Adventures of Quek Quek’  your kiddos will be introduced to the sounds of the Chinese orchestra and its four main sections too! 

Learn about music with the Singapore Chinese Orchestra!

Make some noise!
The little ones will be tapping their toes as they listen to pieces such as Musical Adventure by Tan Kah Yong and Matsuri by Kitaro, all rearranged by renowned local composer Qu Chun Quan. They’ll be clapping along to classics such as Strauss’s Radetzky March and Monti’s Czardas. Fun!  And that’s not all – your kids will also discover music and fun rhythms found in simple, everyday things such as A Rolling Walnut (rearranged by the conductor himself, Quek Ling Kiong), Squabbling Ducks or a number game of Ten, Eight, Six, Four and Two.

Pssst…here’s a tip! It’s worth arriving early, as kids will have the chance to participate in a percussion workshop happening one hour before the concert. They’ll get a hands-on and close-up experience with Adventurer Quek Quek, and learn more about percussion too.
