Forte Fortissimo-Victoria, Thy Sons Are We

May 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$15

Join us in an enthralling evening of music and storytelling with the Victoria School Concert Band and English Drama. This inaugural collaboration will see the magic of music and the passion for acting share a stage at the Singapore Conference Hall.

Under the baton of Mr David Wong, the band will explore pieces from the world of animation, with melodies from iconic movies such as Spirited AwayNausicaa of the Valley of the Wind and Frozen that are sure to bring back fond memories of your childhood.

Transitioning from animated soundscapes to a fantastical tale of strength and loyalty, we ask the question, “What is outcome without purpose?”, which is also the title of the play commissioned for this event. Performed by the English Drama under the coaching of Mr Ian Loy and Ms Vanessa Toh, it promises to captivate and inspire through its themes of dedication and resilience.

Ending the night, we will have our band and drama share the stage for the first ever premiere of the piece, Nil Sine Labore: Victoria, Thy Sons Are We. Commissioned for Victoria School in 2021, the Victoria School Concert Band and Drama will present to you this piece, set to the words of the poem “Thy sons are we”, written by distinguished VS Alumnus, Professor Edwin Thumboo.
