The Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO) has been inspiring memorable experiences with music since 1979. In addition to live concerts and recordings, the orchestra also conducts outdoor and community performances.
The programmes supported by the Foundation include:
Reaching out to the local communities and young audience
SSO organises events for different communities such as outdoor concerts at Gardens by the Bay and Botanic Gardens, and lunchtime concerts in the Victoria Concert Hall. SSO also organises concerts designed for young people to increase their appreciation of classical music. Reaching out to more than 30,000 local and young audience members, these concerts provide opportunities for Singaporeans to enjoy classical tunes with their families and friends at no charge.
Making classical concert more affordable though a ticket subsidy scheme
To reach out to new and diverse audiences, SSO expanded its ticket subsidy scheme to make classical concerts more accessible and affordable for the public. This includes discounts for students, seniors and National Servicemen. Thus far, about 15,000 audience members have benefitted from this scheme.
