Join the Singapore National Youth Orchestra, under the direction of Principal Conductor Dr. Leonard Tan, as they present a selection of music by 20th century American composers. The programme begins with Leonard Bernstein’s exciting Candide Overture followed by Aaron Copland’s folk-influenced Appalachian Spring. Traversing a myriad of styles from John Adam’s minimalist Short Ride in a Fast Machine to Charles Ives’ bitonal explorations in Variations on “America”, and closing with John Williams’ grand yet thrilling Star Wars Suite for Orchestra, this concert promises to capture the zeitgeist of American orchestral music.
