Setting up a symphony orchestra is a difficult task. Setting up a symphony orchestra for children is even more difficult.
Through the support of parents, teachers and various prominent figures in the music scene in Singapore, kids’ philharmonic@sg Orchestra (新加坡少儿交响乐团) was finally established as a non-profit organisation in July 2012. Kids’Philharmonic is also the only local symphony orchestra, consist of children between the age of 7 to 16 years old.
Since establishment, we have already successfully organised concerts at Victoria Concert Hall, Esplanade Concert Hall, and Recital Studio and had worked with organ. The objective of this orchestra is to create a platform for our young talents to not only play together in a professional orchestra setting but also to play professional orchestra repertoire.
In time to come, we are confident that Kids Philharmonic will be a prominent kids-only symphony orchestra in Singapore.
