This light-hearted concert opens with three young harmonica soloists playing familiar classics accompanied on piano.
Saturday, 21 Dec 2019 | 7.30 pm - 9.30 pm | Esplanade Recital Studio | $30
Throughout the entire concert, familiar movie themes and pop songs from the 1960s to 1980s will indulge our middle-aged audience, into re-living their youths during the tumultuous years of our country.
These songs are specially re-arranged for this Old Flames concert. We are very glad to have Singapore Tremolo Strings (STS) collaborating with our harmonica soloists to interpret these beautiful songs.
Harmonica ensemble is a unique format of harmonica playing, and we are delighted to stage three ensembles: TJ, SPRESSO and Symphonic Harmonica Ensemble. The audience will have the pleasure to see three distinct styles in harmonica ensemble performance.
The highlight of the concert is a guitar solo of a captivating Spanish fantasy theme “Vamo all Flamenco” (from Final Fantasy IX) accompanied by SPRESSO Harmonica Ensemble. This unique arrangement showcases classical guitar playing with different types of harmonicas, producing a charming effect of their combined colours and textures.
