SPH Gift of Music returns with a musical gift to the nation
- Concert will be live-streamed on 24 July 2021
Singapore, 19 July 2021 - After more than a year-long hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the SPH Gift of Music, a series of free community concerts sponsored by Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) Foundation, will return with A Gift of Love, a concert by Ding Yi Music Company on 24 July at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre Auditorium. 

Ding Yi Music Company, a renowned Chinese chamber ensemble and recipient of the Singapore Chinese Cultural Contribution Award in 2019, will perform two shows at 3pm and 7pm respectively. Due to overwhelming response, pre-registration for the two physical concerts has closed. However, online audiences can still catch the live-streamed concert at 7pm on the Facebook pages of SPH, Ding Yi and 96.3 Hao FM.

A Gift of Love concert aims to spread joy and hope amid the pandemic situation. It is a reminder to take comfort in the love of our family, friends and those around us during challenging times.

Inspired by the 2021 National Day Parade theme of ‘Together, Our Singapore Spirit’, the multi-cultural repertoire will feature popular favourites such as Chinese pop hits Friends Forever and My Dearest Baby, Indian medley Veena Concerto, Malay medley Beruntung Jadi Anak Kelatan and one of Singapore’s favourite National Day songs Home, written by Dick Lee.

The concert, conducted by Wong De Li, Dedric, will be hosted by SPH Radio 96.3 Hao FM DJ De Ming who will also perform a song with the ensemble. The programme will also feature two soloists, Cellist Chee Jun Sian and Veena musician Madhavan Kalaichelvan.

This concert is sponsored by Singapore Press Holdings Foundation under the SPH Gift of Music series. The official radio partner is SPH Radio.
