Happy Chinese New Year Concert 2017 欢乐春节 - 新春音乐会 2017

Come celebrate the Year of the Rooster with Ding Yi Music Company at their Happy Chinese New Year Concert 2017. Soak yourself with some Chinese folk songs & tunes with them and get into the joyous festive mood.  Better yet, how about enjoying the newly arranged compositions a capella style? This is a performance that is definitely worth looking forward to!

Concert Synopsis 
After the well-received Chinese New Year concert in 2016, Ding Yi is honoured to collaborate with the China Cultural Centre once again to present their Happy Chinese New Year Concert 2017 at the China Cultural Centre Theatre.

This is no ordinary concert coz it was initially staged for China’s President Xi Jinping at the state banquet hosted by President Tony Tan in 2015, Ding Yi has extended this year’s concert to the Singaporean public for them to enjoy a similar presidential experience.

The Performers
Be mesmerized by the soaring vocals of renowned soprano – Zhou Xiao Man, contemporary sounds of home-grown a cappella group The Apex Project; led by Ng Cheeyang, winner of Campus SuperStar, and Ding Yi’s talented soloists Fred Chan and Soh Swee Kiat who will be playing the Cantonese gaohu and traditional sheng respectively.

Under the baton of Assistant Conductor Dedric Wong, Ding Yi has added some local flavour to classical Chinese folk songs to give Singaporeans a fresh take on the tunes that has accompanied us throughout the years. You are welcomed to waltz with the performers on 12 February 2017, with their Singaporean take on classical Chinese folk songs such as Beating the Long Drum (长鼓敲起来), A Good Day (好日子) and Heavenly Road (天路).

  1. My favourite Chinese New Year song is “恭喜恭喜” (gōng xǐ gōng xǐ) because it is the first song that I learn to sing for Chinese new year!
