What We Do • Performances
Notable international collaborations include performances with the Korea National Opera, Tan Dun, Kitaro, Paul Anka and Il Divo. First-in-Singapore programmes include the Southeast Asian and Asian premieres of live-to-projection performances of Howard Shore's full soundtrack score to the first 2 movies of the The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy; the Southeast Asian premiere of Disney’s most successful live orchestra concert production – Disney on Classic; collaborations with international pianist Lang Lang and other top Singaporean pop talents as part of the Sing50 mega-concert at the National Stadium; and the wildly-successfully Star Wars & Beyond concert experience at the Marina Bay Sands.
The MFO is constantly breaking new grounds through its forward-looking programmes, and its public concerts are the centrepiece of its activities. Within just 3 years of its founding, the MFO has already performed to more than 89,000 audience members, across a multitude of music genres and concert formats.
The MFO also supports the development of local young music talent through its work as the resident accompanying orchestra of the National Piano & Violin Competition organised by the National Arts Council.
