Under the direction of the Music Director Dr Tay Teow Kiat, and the Conductor Mr Quek Ling Kiong, the chamber ensemble has garnered distinctions and prizes both locally and abroad. With a constellation of 20 of Singapore’s most dynamic, talented and multiple award-winning musicians, most of whom went through professional training at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, it first drew national attention in 2008 by winning the First Prize in the Singapore National Arts Council Chinese Music Competition. In the subsequent year, it emerged Champion in the prestigious Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod held in Wales, United Kingdom; and more recently it clinched the Silver Award in the 28th Shanghai Spring International Music Festival.

Ding Yi Music Company presents Songs of Home, our 2014 first outreach concert that features songs that are familiar to all Singaporeans. It aims to appeal to the mass public with light-hearted and nostalgic tunes. Chinese instrumental arrangement such as《如燕》 (Like a Swallow), 《城里的月光》 (Moonlight in the City) and 《麻雀衔竹枝》 (The Sparrow with a Bamboo Twig) will be performed.

Aspiring and young Singaporean singers and students from School of the Arts music camp will be performing with Ding Yi Music Company as well. Don’t miss a melodious evening that you can sing and enjoy the beautiful sceneries at the Singapore Botanic Gardens with us.
