Heartstrings 2019 is returning to SJI for the third consecutive year!
Our line-up of Singapore’s critically acclaimed artistes and SJI’s talented musicians will make your time spent with us worthwhile.
Mr Robert Fernando, the extraordinaire and highly sought-after vocalist is back by popular demand. He will thrill and delight you with his serenade of nostalgic melodies. And his quick wits on stage never fails to thrill his fans. He is the voice behind our very own favourite National Day Parade (NDP) classics, such as “We are Singapore”.
Ms Lauren Yeo, one of SJI’s favourite artistes and the multiple award-winning soprano soloist, will enchant you with her angelic and powerful vocals. Ms Yeo has attained many honours and received numerous commendations by professionals, including the Grammy award-winning Canadian music producer, David Foster.
You will be fully mesmerized by the soaring vocals of Mr Syah Riszuan. He has accumulated an impressive list of musical accolades despite being only 14 years old. A semi-finalist in Asia’s Got Talent, he uses his talent to bring joy and hope into people’s lives, singing at numerous charity concerts including ChildAid 2017 and 2018.
The Beautiful Mind Music Academy students will amaze and touch you with their musical talents and courage. There will also be classical, light pop and jazz musical treats from SJI’s chamber ensemble, together with the rest of our talented musicians and performers including Garageband, and other SJI distinguished performers on that night.
All proceeds will be donated to SPD (formerly known as Society for the Physically Disabled) and Beautiful Mind Charity (BMC) Singapore. SPD was established in 1964 and seeks to maximise the potential of people with disabilities of all ages and support people of all ages by offering various programmes and services including rehabilitation, day care and vocational training. Beautiful Mind Charity is a philanthropic organisation that nurture children with disabilities by fulfilling their dreams of becoming musicians.
Please support us in this worthy cause! Get your tickets now!
