2. T’ang Quartet’s Upsized Christmas
22 December 2012, 7.30pm, Esplanade
Looking for something different this year?
Promising to marry classical pieces and yuletide favourites together with joy and laughter, the T’ang Quartet presents their rendition of “Minimax” which pokes fun at arrogant musicians for the first part of its show. This is followed by a focus on all-time Christmas favourites from Silent Night to White Christmas; the evening will wind up on a suitably festive mood.
3. Jonathan Meur and Sean Chua
23 December 2012, 9.30pm, Ngee Ann City
You may have seen this album at various Starbucks, Gramophone, HMV outlets; but it is also available online for download at christmasinsingapore.bandcamp.com . (All proceeds go to the Rare Disorders Society.) Jonathan’s song <December by the Isle of You> is featured on this album.
“It was not inspired by a special someone but the idea for the song is the time of the year when people start
“Eventually you realise that the best place is wherever a special someone is.”
