The National University of Singapore (NUS) will mark the close of its year-long 110th anniversary celebrations with a concert at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, our country’s first UNESCO World Heritage site!
So pack your picnic baskets and join this very special event as the NUS Yong Siew Toh Conservatory Orchestra performs an array of rousing orchestral works for the family. Presented by principal conductor Jason Lai, the concert will open with Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture followed by selections from Dvorak’s invigorating New World Symphony and Mozart’s Violin Concerto performed by NUS alumnus and one of Singapore’s top violinists, Loh Jun Hong. Then travel through the magical world of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with John Williams’ orchestral suite from Harry Potter. Tchaikovsky’s 'Waltz of the Flowers' from The Nutcracker Suite will wrap up the repertoire of music.
Local instrumental band and Conservatory alumni The Lorong Boys, as well as magicians and balloon sculptors, will provide pre-concert entertainment from 5.00pm to keep the little ones entertained!
Event Time: 6.00pm to 7.00pm (pre-concert entertainment from 5.00 pm)
Heavily praised for his versatility, DJ and producer Danny Daze continues to smash expectations with an omnivorous groove rooted in Detroit Techno, Italo Disco, and Miami Bass. Daze’s freeform selecting and mercurial mixing guarantees the only thing audiences can expect is a musical experience where everything is up for grabs. Combined with his entrepreneurial acumen, Daze’s touch has made him one of his generation’s most compelling artists.
Danny Daze’s trifecta of taste, skills, and vision set him apart from most DJs who stick to one style or focus on one angle of the business. Daze’s radical approach to preserving music’s integrity while breaking its boundaries may seem volatile, but it’s not random. “Everything I'm doing comes from within. There isn't much difference between Daniel Gomez and Danny Daze.”
