Celebrating 50 Years of Singapore Music, The Sing50 concert celebrates the artists and composers who have written the soundtrack of such a diverse music heritage of Singapore!
The Foundation was honored to be a supporter for this historic show featuring Lang Lang and the Metropolitan Festival Orchestra performing a special Concerto composed to celebrate Singapore’s 50th year! 50 pianists performed with Lang Lang and the MFO, each on a Steinway designed Lang Lang Baby Grand Pianos, which will all be donated to schools and music institutions through the Sing50 Fund’s Adopt-A-Piano initiative. Lang Lang along side pop-star JJ Lin also performed their hit song Clash of Souls for over 40,000 people in the stadium!
“The donation drive of the 50 pianos is a significant project that is in line with my mission in music education when I founded the International Music Lang Lang Foundation in 2008. I collaborated with Steinway & Sons to launch the Lang Lang piano series as an avenue to provide young pianists with the opportunity to play on top-quality pianos … After all, to be able to practice on a Steinway piano is a wonderful privilege … and I remember how much I wanted one when I was younger.” – Lang Lang (The Business Times)
