Surpassing Beauty - SSO Concert


Kam Ning, as soloist

Posted by Picasa

The month of November will be a happy and exciting one for me, for I will be able to see all my siblings in Singapore and many relatives from different parts of the world.

It is rare for all of us five siblings to meet together as we are staying in different countries. It is sheer happiness for me to be able to see all of them.
Eldest brother, Kee Yong's orchestral works will be performed by the SSO, with his daughter, Kam Ning as soloist. It will be conducted by my ex-student from ACS, Darrell Ang.

I hope my local readers will try to make it a point to attend the concert if time permits. It will be a very enjoyable concert! The following are the details of the
