Singapore has a high standard when it comes to entertainment and music. The Singapore Chinese Orchestra or SCO is the lone professional Chinese orchestra in the country, and for that, it was accorded iconic status. The Chinese orchestra was inaugurated in 1997 and since then, the Singapore Conference Hall has become its performing home.
The Vision, Mission, and Values of SCO
SCO is a group of instrumentalists and musicians with the vision of becoming a Chinese orchestra with a distinctively Singaporean character that will be known throughout the whole world. The people behind this very impressive and successful orchestra are so much dedicated in inspiring their listeners through playing extraordinary music. Their mission of inspiring people through music is not only limited in Singapore but also extends to the ends of the earth. In every performance, SCO always strives for excellence. What makes them a strong and thriving orchestra is the fact that each member is committed to teamwork and is open to further learning and innovation.
SCO in 2013
SCO is so much blessed to have a year jam-packed with musical performances that will certainly pave the way for them to realize their vision and mission as musicians. They will be having quite a lot of concerts in Gardens by the Bay, Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage, Esplanade Concert Hall, and One Raffles Quay, but most of their concerts and performances this 2013 will be held at the SCO Concert Hall located in Shenton Way. You can visit their website, www.sco.com.sg, for you to keep posted of their year-round musical performances. Truly, seeing and hearing the Singapore Chinese Orchestra perform is worth your time, money, and effort.
