To celebrate 50 years of Singapore-Malaysia ties, Titian Budaya is being held from 21 November 2015 to 17 January 2016 and it showcases the creative talents of Singapore and Malaysia across a wide array of art forms. As part of its series of events, one significant highlight is Titian Budaya Night, which is scheduled on December 8 2015 at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS.
This one-night-only gala aims to magnify the building of bridges across cultures and boundaries, and features a star-studded cast of soloists that includes jazz maestro Jeremy Monteiro and Singapore crooner Taufik Batisah, who will join the Singapore Chinese Orchestra to perform the works of well-known Malaysian and Singaporean composers.
Tok Dalang Eyo Hock Seng will lead Kelantanese wayang kulit troupe Kumpulan Sri Campuran to perform a specially commissioned work from Malaysian composer Yii Kah Hoe, based on the play The Silly Little Girl and the Funny Old Tree written by the late Kuo Pao Kun. The concert also celebrates the music of the legendary P. Ramlee, especially re-arranged by Eric Watson and performed by Taufik Batisah. The programme will also be musically supported by a 90-piece Singapore Chinese Orchestra.
You can still purchase tickets for Titian Budaya Night that are priced at RM50, RM70, RM100 or RM130 via the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra’s official website.
