Kick-start the New Year and celebrations of Singapore's 50th year of independence with Braddell Heights Symphony Orchestra (BHSO) as they present "JOY!" - Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

As Singapore's longest-serving community orchestra, BHSO will begin this musical journey through time with Overture in C - The Story of Singapore, composed by Cultural Medallion recipient and local jazz legend Jeremy Monteiro. The overture, which contains a line from the well-loved national song, One People, One Nation, One Singapore, tells the story of Singapore's transformation from a sleepy fishing village to the modern city that it is today.

The concert will culminate in Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in D minor, best known for its theme Ode to Joy, which continues to inspire hope and joy around the world. The 80-strong orchestra, comprising primarily of amateur musicians with a passion for music, will be conducted by music director and conductor, Adrian Tan. They will be accompanied by soloists and The Joy Chorale led by chorus mistress, Khor Ai Ming.
