Stories from an Island City (2016)

Ten Singaporean stories are beautifully told through music, film and dance in this special presentation by The TENG Ensemble, directed by Singapore theatre icon Glen Goei.

Familiar motifs from Singapore’s heritage songs such as Chan Mali Chan, Di Tanjong Katong and Munnaeru Vaalibaa feature in The TENG Ensemble’s original pieces, written by New York-based composer Chow JunYi in collaboration with Singapore music arranger Huang Peh Linde. Steeped in Singapore’s multicultural identity, the music is brought vividly to life with scenes of the island nation by Singapore filmmakers, alongside dance accompaniment.

The pieces featured in the concert are part of the “Temasek Heritage Series”.
