MEP Performance at National Gallery Singapore
On the 22 July, five of us from Crescent Girls School's Music Elective Programme (MEP) performed at the National Gallery Singapore. This performance was part of MEP Schools' Community Outreach to promote and educate the general public about music in schools, as well as to celebrate the musical talents and passion of our MEP students.
The performance by various MEP schools featured a diverse range of musical styles and genres, ranging from classical to pop. Our students transcribed an arrangement of "Gabriel's Oboe" originally written for a string quartet and staged it for 5 wind instruments - 2 French Horns and 3 Saxophones. "Gabriel's Oboe" is the main theme from the 1986 film "The Mission". Its famous beautiful haunting melody, written by the Italian composer, Ennio Morricone, is believed to be the most widely recorded tune by many renowned artists.
Our performance was very well received and we were delighted to have this opportunity to perform at the national gallery, which is well-known for holding the world's largest display of modern Southeast Asian Artworks.
