Donate a minimum sum of $500 to attend the concert*

Singapore, 9 October 2020 (Friday) – For the first time in 16 years, Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO) will be doing a Virtual Fundraising Gala Concert. This marks a fresh beginning, a significant change from our usual Fundraising Gala Dinner & Concerts in hotel ballrooms.  The Covid-19 pandemic took the world by storm, and almost brought the world to a halt. Despite this adversity, it does not stop musicians from creating music, lifting spirits in such tumultuous times.

The Virtual Fundraising Gala Concert will be held on 23 October 2020 (Saturday), 7.30pm. The duration is approximate 60 minutes long. This year is also SCO’s 24th year since inception and 17th Fundraising Gala Concert. The highlight of the night will be the Zoom live-streaming of SCO performance at SCO Concert Hall at 8pm. Conducted by SCO Music Director Tsung Yeh, sit back and relax, as 23 SCO musicians present an evening of flowing joy and energy.

This exclusive event will be open to invited guests and donors. Donate a minimum sum of $500 to attend this Virtual Fundraising Gala Concert. Donations will receive dollar-for-dollar matching grants from Cultural Matching Fund set up by Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY). We thank our donors for their generosity and support, especially during this difficult period.

Like previous years, for donations $10,000 and above, donors will receive an exclusive souvenir token. For this year’s Virtual Fundraising Gala Concert, SCO will be featuring the instrument yueqin (月琴).  This token is specially sponsored by Shanghai No. 1 National Musical Instruments Factory (上海民族乐器一厂). SCO will also be giving our donors a 2-bottle wine gift set (1 sparkling wine & 1 red wine) and a box of cookies. The cookies are specially sponsored by BreadTalk.  A BreadTalk rewards card with stored value of $50 will be included as well.

* Donors can choose to donate through cheque or PayNow to SCO directly.
