American composer-conductor Bernard Herrmann (1911–1975) is celebrated for his work in film music, chief among them, the pioneering music for Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. On the occasion of the 110th anniversary of his birth, this Red Balloon Series programme showcases the thrilling music from the famous score, alongside new string arrangements from the composer’s lyrical side — the nostalgic Echoes and the tender Souvenirs de Voyage.
The Singapore Symphony Children's Choir offers training and performance opportunities to children by developing their vocal technique, music literacy and musicianship, with an aim to help fledgling singers achieve their fullest musical potential. Singing with the SSCC requires discipline and teamwork, which in turn fosters confidence, self-esteem, and helps develop important life skills. Besides our own concerts, the SSCC offers the extraordinary experience of performing monumental choral classics with the combined forces of the Singapore Symphony choruses and orchestra.
