Dear friends, colleagues and fellow music lovers,
Happy New Year!
The Metropolitan Festival Orchestra's 2015 was certainly a year to remember - from collaborations and performances with an Academy Award-winning composer, internationally celebrated music megastars to Singapore's most beloved pop & rock artistes that have graced our nation's stages for the last 50 years. We were also proud to have performed the Southeast Asian premiere of Disney on Classic, Disney's most successful live orchestral show, that saw an entire audience on their feet!
A day into 2016, the MFO remains on the move, building a busy calendar of events that will connect, inspire and entertain through music. For a start, we are looking forward to our upcoming Star Wars & Beyond performances in collaboration with the British conductor, Anthony Inglis. Co-presented with our friends at BASE Entertainment Asia at the landmark Marina Bay Sands Theatres on 11 & 12 March 2016, we will embark on a musical voyage through the iconic film scores of John Williams from Star Wars, E.T., Superman and Jurassic Park, amongst others, complete with stage lasers and pyrotechnics.
A host of other projects are also coming to fruition soon and we look forward to sharing more information with all of you once details have been confirmed.
Thanks very much for being a part of our exciting journey and on behalf of all of us at the MFO, I wish you an inspiring 2016!
Dr Kevin Koh
Metropolitan Festival Orchestra
