WBAS presents Concerts Go Online, a series of four chamber ensemble recitals showcasing local freelancer musicians performing a mix of high-quality chamber works and band works adapted for a smaller ensemble. Featuring woodwind quintet, brass quintet, percussion quartet and a flexi band made up of 10 musicians. We hope that the programme can demonstrate and encourage youth wind players to explore chamber music as a means to navigate music-making during a pandemic or post-pandemic “new normal” times. Works featured in this series of concerts include local composer, Lee Jin Jun’s Little White Boat, Frank Ticheli’s Vesuvius, Brian Balmages’ Blue Ridge, Nicole Piunno’s Solace Dance and newly composed flexi work, Gambol by Jack Stamp. Alongside the flexi band works, you can also enjoy classics such as Morning Mood, Hall of the Mountain King by Edvard Grieg. Tritsch Tratsch Polka, and hear the glorious trumpet solo in Amazing Grace and the trombone solo featured on local composer Goh Toh Chai’s Bengawan Solo.
Join various musicians and conductors at the post-concert Zoom Chat at 8.15pm on WBAS Facebook page to find out more about this special way of music-making.
