Good day to all reading this blog J
I trust that you are having days as interesting and rich in events as I do. Even though the weather here in Singapore has been exclusively rainy for the past few days, I was not bored to death – thanks to the Nanyang Polytechnic staff who is always doing its best to entertain OSEP students. This time, for instance, we were invited to NYP symphony concert “Sinfonia 2017” to celebrate the double milestone of Nanyang Polytechnics 25th Anniversary and the NYP Symphony Orchestra’s 15th Anniversary.
The programme included “A Festive Overture” by Alfred Reed, “Variations on a Kitchen Sink” by Don Gillis performed by NYP Wind Orchestra. It was then followed by “El Camino Real” by Alfred Reed and my absolute favorite of the evening - “Italian Rhapsody” by Julie Giroux. Following it was “Spring Festival Overture” by Li Huan Zhi, “A Whole New World” by Alan Menken, ABBA’s “Thank You for the Music”, and “Classics through the Era” which consisted of the well-known pieces from Pachelbel, Mozart, Grieg and Webber.
It was a very enjoyable evening. NYP Symphony Orchestra has won numerous awards around the world. It was a great pleasure to listen to it, and I didn’t really feel like leaving the cozy ambiance of the NYP auditorium. Not until it was announced that light refreshments are served in the lobby J
The evening was finalized with delicious light refreshments (read “proper three course dinner”. Thanks NYP for this wonderful evening. What a great pastime on a rainy day.
This is all for today, but more is yet to come.
Have a great day and see you soon J
