Live music events
Poeme Symphonique for 110 Metronomes
Here’s a concert that celebrates a non-instrument: the humble metronome. A hundred and ten of these ticking devices, each set to different beats-per-minute, are simultaneously released. The result is a flurry of clicks, initially chaotic but eventually settling into a deep and hypnotic groove.
Singapore International Jazz Festival 2015
Following its successful debut, the festival returns to Marina Bay Sands with more than 250 artists from mainstream, smooth soul, R&B, contemporary pop and acid jazz. The line-up features headliner Jessie J, pianist and composer Ramsey Lewis, trumpeter Chris Botti, fusion-jazz group Snarky Puppy and Singapore's very own Jeremy Monteiro.
