West Winds returns in another collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, to bring audiences on yet another journey through music. From Japan in 2008 to Europe in 2009, West Winds returns to a region that is close to our hearts and in our own backyard – Asia.

Asia is regarded by many as an eclectic yet charming mix of rich, diverse and colourful cultures with this clearly reflected in our food and music. This evening, West Winds will bring you across the eastern and northern hemispheres of Asia, from China to Saudi Arabia. Audiences will get to hear a musical representation of each Asian region from Alfred Reed’s “Armenian Dances Part 1” to our very own “Postcard from Singapore” written by international and noteworthy composer Philip Sparke.

Conducting this evening’s concert will be MAJ Philip Tng and our Guest Conductor, Yasuhide Ito. Mr Ito is no stranger to Singapore and West Winds, having conducted them in the highly successful “All Things Japanese” concert in 2008.

Date: Saturday 6 March 2010

West Winds returns in 2009 to bring audiences on yet another journey through music. Following last year’s sold out concert – All Things japanese, the group will enthrall audiences with music from the European Continent; the world’s leading centre for the creation and perfoamnce of wind music.

Europe has been synonymous with the works of great composers like Betthoven and Mozart. But little known is that it is also the birthplace of many great wind band work. In this performance West Winds presents some of the best European compositions from Holst’s First Suite in E Flat for Military Band to the renowned music from Miss Saigon.

Conducting the band are guest conductors Mr Jacob de Haan and Dr Lee Tian Tee. Jacob, one of Europe’s most popular composers, will be conducting the band in the performance of his compositions.
