Memories of 2055- Worlds Beyond

Date: 28 March 2020
Time: 5.30pm – 7pm
Venue: Singapore Botanic Gardens, Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage

A concert by Tze Toh and TO ensemble

In the near future, as life on Earth becomes unsustainable, humanity takes the bold step to fulfill our dreams, to reach for the stars in search of a new home.

This is a concert story of our future: a 100 year journey as we leave our solar system to discover worlds beyond.

A sequel to Memories of 2055, this concert paints mysterious, beautiful worlds beyond Earth that our generation ships will encounter, and ponders over our existence, space, time, the fragility of life, and remembers our incredible resilience as a sentient species and our greatest gift – the ability to dream. While humanity’s destiny lies in the stars, we only have one home, and that is Earth.

With original music by award-winning composer Tze Toh, Worlds Beyond is a multi-genre contemporary music concert unlike any other, a fusion of jazz, film score, classical, Carnatic music and Asian sounds. This performance will feature Lazar T. Sebastine (carnatic violin), Marvin Leung (saxophone), Wu Bingling (violin), Tze Toh (piano/keyboards), Izumi Sado (keyboards/voice) and Masato Miyata (acoustic bass).

Singapore Botanic Gardens is part of the National Arts Council’s Arts and Culture Nodes Network.

Concerts subject to prevailing weather conditions.
Concert-goers are advised to take public transport.
