Thank you very much for the invitation to the SCO Young Children’s Concert 2019. The children, the three teachers and I enjoyed ourselves very much – making a wind whistle each, having photographs taken, listening, learning and enjoying the music.  It was such a precious opportunity for which we are very thankful and grateful.

Thank you for the warm welcome, and excellent care given to us while we were there, from the moment we arrived till we left. Fen Ni of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra deserved a special mention – she made us feel so important! The children, past and present participants of Jiemin Primary School kidsREAD Club, had an educational and enjoyable time. Thank you very much”.
