rhapsodies of spring

“What I need is the dandelion in the spring.
The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction.
The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses.
That it can be good again.”
― Suzanne CollinsMockingjay

First Chinese Orchestra concert in the longest time since attending NYGH’s CO concert.
Amazingly, this exceeded initial expectations of a traditional, conservative and customary New Year showcase.
Aside from the professional CO repertoires, I really enjoyed the….

1. Hilarious musical drama by 100.3 DJs.
Which was basically a modern interpretation of Legend of the White Snake with comedic twists.
Some of the DJs can really sing.
And those who can’t…well, were really entertaining in other ways.

2. Chilling vocal showcase by Wu Jia Hui, the original singer of 一人一半 from the movie 881!
He sang it live along with his other songs and I got goosebumps because…
well his sincere emotions radiates from well within him,
and comes forth in the performance as the only charming factor he uses to reach out to his guests…

3. Chinese trumpet (suona) duet
and the strange mouthpiece thinggie that Jingwen’s shifu put in his throat to make his voice so high-pitched!!
SO INTERESTING. But it MUST hurt bad to have it lodged in the throat…and to take it out back ad forth.

4. Strange 50 second Gangnam Style, the Singapore Chinese Orchestra way.

All in all…very unique concert! Enjoyed it more than I thought I would (:

Thanks Jingwen for the ticket…
…and for drawing Changmin for me!!! 🙂

But seriously your drawing of Emma Stone is way more impressive (Y)
