THE EVENT

A collaboration between 2 composers, Lawrence Chiu and Tan Zhi Yong who share their appreciation for nature through music and art. The concert will include some written material and some poetry recited between various pieces of music.

Dirt, or soil as it is referred to in this context, is a very significant part of nature. It is the largest natural water filter on our planet, and it is second only to our oceans as the biggest repository of carbon on the planet. In choosing the title ‘Dirt’ for this concert, we wanted to convey that sometimes we use ‘dirt’ to describe soil with the meaning that it is dirty. However, everything in nature is connected. The soil is home to a variety of animals, plants, and microbial life that makes many antibiotics to help us fight infections. Dirt is incredible.

As a series of community outreach programmes, the Community Chamber series will bring together international and local chamber groups to perform in unconventional venues. Through live chamber music performances, workshops and talks in a casual setting, such as at cafes and shops, we hope to broaden the reach of music awareness and develop an interest in music in the young generations.
