This week has definitely been one to remember for The Music Suite. The week started with 4 year old Ellie Layson making her first public performance at the National Library Board(NLB). Just yesterday, we had another young violinist make her debut public performance. This time, 6 year old Faith Ow took to the stage and wowed a 200-strong audience at the Singapore Chinese Chamber Institute of Business'(SCCIOB) 30th Anniversary Celebration Dinner. Present in the 200-strong audience was Senior Minister of State for Finance and Transport, Mrs Josephene Teo.
The Music Suite was invited by the SCCIOB to put up a short performance for their 30th anniversary dinner and showcase a young performer. The evening started with 3 of our very own teachers, teacher Jeremiah, teacher Tingxi(Faith’s Violin Teacher) and teacher Wen-Bin put up a trio performance for the attendees of the dinner. Following the short segment by our 3 teachers, our soloist for the night, Faith Ow, was introduced to the audience. She was warmly received with applause as she made her way out onto the stage. Following some minor adjustments to the height and positioning of the mic, our young Faith was ready to go!
Faith started her solo segment with the popular tune, Amazing Grace. The crowd went silent as she started her performance, listening intently to our young performer. Faith then moved on to her 2nd piece, Theme from Withces’ Dance, which was also accompanied by the string trio. Upon completing her last note, the crowd burst into loud applause! Faith had played her 2 pieces flawlessly!
Faith and the trio remained on stage for the cake cutting ceremony, where they played “Happy Birthday’ while the 200-strong crowd sang along. Following this, the guest of honour, Mrs Josephene Teo, and the VIPs of the event snapped some pictures on stage with our performer.
Overall, Faith’s debut public performance was a very successful one! We at The Music Suite are extremely proud of her and all our students. Keep up the good work!
