SINGAPORE - Close to 10,000 people attended a two-day concert event held at the Botanic Gardens over the weekend.
The second and final day of Temasek Presents, Jubilee at the Botanics, saw the Singapore Symphony Orchestra performing with musicians from the Singapore National Youth Orchestra for the first time ever. Also present to perform with the orchestra was Amni Musfirah, an up-and-coming young vocalist who is training at the Berklee College of Music.
The SSO performed a combination of established musical pieces including Moon River, and I Dreamed a Dream, as well as local favourites such as Count on Me Singapore and Home.
Joining the crowd was local singer, Nathan Hartono. Nathan was also the host of the Jubilee at the Botanics webisodes, which featured the conductors and musicians from the SSO and the Singapore Chinese Orchestra. At the concert, Nathan was present to mingle with the audiences and to also share about his journey of musical discovery.
Jubilee at the Botanics featured two concerts over the May 30 and 31 weekend. It started with a performance from the Singapore Chinese Orchestra on Saturday and concluded with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra taking the stage on Sunday.
The aim of this event was to bring family and friends together to bond over the love for music in Singapore's iconic Botanic Gardens.
