Cellography 2018

For one evening only, Cellography brings you a selection of your favourite tunes, from the grand harmonies of movie soundtracks from La La Land, The Godfather and Pirates of the Caribbean, to the toe-tapping beats of Louis Fonsi’s Despacito, Magic!’s Rude and Camila Cabello’s Havana.

Helmed by Hughes, Singapore’s only cello orchestra has grown since its first concert in 2014. The age range of its members has also widened, with the youngest cellist in this fourth installment being only seven years old. But age, experience and profession are never a barrier in Cellography, where everyone is welcomed to bask in the joy of playing the cello.

Come listen to “Our Music, Our Stories”. Cellography is an all-inclusive group out to show that the cello is more than just a bass support instrument and that everyone can join in the fun. The rich sound of the cello, coupled with the great acoustics of the theatre, promises you an evening of enjoyable music to relax to.

Chinmayam 2018

Chinmayam 2018 is a cultural extravaganza featuring notable celebrity artistes as well as our very own local talents. Our special guest for the evening is none other than Gautham Vasudev Menon, the outstanding South Indian Film director who has given us precious gems in films such as ‘Minnale’, ‘Vaaranam Aayiram', ‘Ennai Arindhal' and so on. His movies have reached out to the people and tugged at their hearts for the emotions and sentiments they evoke, while telling a story simply using familiar situations and characters. It is our honour to have him among us to share his thoughts and experiences.

We are also proud to have the honourable Ustad Fazal Qureshi with us to create extraordinary music as his swift and nimble fingers create magic on the tabla. Together with him, the brilliant Naveen Kumar will mesmerise us with his soothing renditions on the flute. Naveen is no stranger to us as he has played the flute for legends like AR Rahman and also to music from movies such as ‘Roja’, ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’, ‘Taal’ and more. Together, these two accomplished musicians will set the stage on fire with a beautiful ‘Jugalbandhi’. Be prepared to fill your souls with hauntingly melodious songs by Geethiyaa Varman, Sajith Sankar and Sangeeta Madhav as they enchant you with their impressive range of vocals.

There will also be some mesmerising dance performances by the very graceful Maalika Panicker, who inspires many with her creative and precise choreography. The highlight of the night will be a dance drama, titled ‘Ramarasam’ based on the Hindu mythology, ‘Ramayana’. Join our young talents as they take you on a journey through time to retell the tale of Lord Rama and his wife, Sita, as seen through the eyes of the young Lava and Kusha. This will be performed by over fifty local talents, many of whom are children and students.

This drama is a move to initiate greater interest and participation among the younger generation towards the local arts scene.

Why Don't We - The Invitation Tour

You’re Cordially Invited! American rising dance-pop boy group, Why Don’t We, will be bringing their “The Invitation Tour” to Singapore for the first time ever!

“The Invitation Tour” celebrates Why Don’t We’s chart-topping EP, “Invitation”. Fresh from their sold-out shows across North America and Europe, they are finally coming to Southeast Asia for the first time! Fans in Singapore are definitely in for a treat as they will be watching the group performing live for the first time here.

Amassing more than 212 million global audio streams, 2.7 million Instagram followers, and over 1.6 million subscribers on YouTube with views exceeding 170 million, Why Don’t We is one of pop music’s biggest breakout stories. Following their debut EP “Only The Beginning” and EP “Something Different”, it was last summer’s “Why Don’t We Just” EP that first exploded, hitting #1 on iTunes’ “Pop Albums” chart, overtaking artists like Bruno Mars, Harry Styles, and Ed Sheeran. After selling out their first-ever headlining summer tour, the band put out their “Invitation” EP which proved an even greater success, topping iTunes’ Overall Albums chart in six countries including the United States. The band’s single “These Girls” made a Top 10 debut on the iTunes Store’s “Top Pop Songs” chart late last summer, only to be surpassed by their latest single “Trust Fund Baby”. The band also garnered early press attention from Entertainment Weekly, Us Weekly, and Billboard who named the band in their annual “21 Under 21” ranking.

Singapore fans should not miss this rare chance to catch Why Don’t We for the first time live in Singapore! It will be a night to remember at “The Invitation Tour”!
