In The Spring

March 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


In the Spring features a repertoire including pieces by composers Alfred Reed, David Holsinger, Bert Appermont and Oliver Waespi.

Music for “Hamlet” is a piece by Alfred Reed based on the tragedy play written by William Shakespeare with four movements depicting different scenes and eventually, the dramatic and tragic death of Hamlet.

In the Spring at the Time When Kings Go Off to War, uses a variety of musical idioms, from diatonic to “sound mass,” aleatoric to measured, vocal to synthetic. Holsinger has intertwined a tonal picture of the chaos, pathos, triumph, grief, faith, and tragedy in this composition.

The Singapore Wind Symphony (SWS) was founded in 1977 under the auspices of the National Theatre Trust, and was formerly known as the National Theatre Symphonic Band (NTSB). In 1992, it was renamed the Singapore Wind Symphony – and embarked on a new era of excellence in music-making, winning local and international accolades, establishing itself as one of the pinnacle ensembles of its kind in Singapore.

The Singapore Wind Symphony Youth Band, newly formed and made up of passionate youths, will be making their debut performance!
