Join us for a special lunchtime concert series for children, where you and your child can play along with the musicians! Children are welcome to be themselves, groove along or dance, and enjoy being exposed to the world of music.
The last concert
in this series features pan-cultural violinist and composer Kailin Yong.
He will bring his refreshing arrangements of popular Asian folk songs and original
compositions that pay tribute to the rich cultural heritage of his native
Southeast Asia to Asian Civilization Museum.
He will be backed
by up-and-coming keyboardist and arranger Amanda Cheong, a graduate of
Singapore Polytechnic in Music and Audio Technology, who is currently serving
an internship with Red Roof Records.
This concert is suitable for children above 0.5 years old. The concert venue would have play mats and some musical instruments for your child to play along with. The music is also carefully chosen to appeal to both babies and adults and performed by professional musicians, ranging from harpists to string quartets. All concerts include a short talk about music and the instruments. At the end of each performance, kids are also encouraged to touch or even try the instruments.
More information about the performances will be updated closer to the date.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who are the performers?
ACM is working together with Play with Mozart
to present this series. They specialize in bringing classical music concerts for children (from babies to older children!) as this is the age mostly not catered for by traditional concert halls. Find out more about them here
My child is very active and sometimes noisy. Is he/ she required to sit still for the duration?
Absolutely not. Children are free to dance and roam about. They can even crawl around and sit right by the performers. Your child is also free to interact with other children - it's really a concert for your child to have fun!
What can I do after the concerts?
This series is part of our June Holiday school programme, Fun-tastic Friday
