Words and Music - A Love Story Told in Jazz

Words and Music - A Love Story Told in Jazz

Inspired by AR Gurney’s Love Letters, Words and Music traces the love between two people separated by circumstances, but bound by their passion for jazz.

Shen (Shafiqhah Efandi), the daughter of a highly respected academic, wonders if dreams come at the expense of home; Fong (Bright Ong), who follows the normal path of a university education and ends up with a safe career as a teacher, finds something missing in his life. When opportunity knocks and one does not grab it, will it be lost forever?

Through original music composed and performed by Cultural Medallion (Jazz) recipient Jeremy Monteiro with notable NUS alumni such as Rani Singam, as well as familiar jazz standards by NUS Jazz Band, woven into a script written by Wang Liansheng (The Boy Inside) and directed by Tan Shou Chen, Words and Music is their love story tenderly told in jazz.
